Please view our schedules below.
October Sermon Series: AMAZING GRACE
In the New Testament book of Titus, the Apostle Paul shares with his young friend, Titus, about what life as a Leader and as a Jesus follower is all about. In Titus 2, in the middle of a section talking about how to best teach and serve the people you are with, Paul talks about the essence of what Grace is. Grace has gotten a bad reputation as being that which provides you with everything, and we have zero responsibility. Dietrich Bonhoeffer called this, "Cheap Grace", and this nothing close to what Paul shares with Titus. Join us as we look at the real, life-changing meaning of "Amazing Grace".
November Sermon Series: AWAKEN
November is the month that we focus, for a concentrated time, on Missions, specifically within the C&MA. We are going to be bringing something each month as a Missions reminder, and we look forward to having Scott Wiggins, C&MA missionary to Germany, and formerly to Iraq, here for our Missions Conference in March. In this series, we will be looking at the command of Jesus in Acts 1:8, and see what Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Ends fo the Earth look like for us. Join us as we look at what God is doing around us and in us, as we AWAKEN to the teaching of His Word.
December Sermon Series: AND HE SHALL BE CALLED
This Advent Season, we will be going back to the Old Testament prophecy about who Jesus, the Messiah would be, as found in the book of Isaiah. The names of Jesus are many, but God focused in on these particular names in Isaiah 7, and we will celebrate the One who is called, "Jesus" for He came to save His people from their sin. Join us as we celebrate Jesus!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD:
We're proud to partner once again with Samaritan's Purse for Operation Christmas Child!
