News & Events
It’s Advent, a time where we celebrate the arrival of our Lord, Jesus Christ! This is the most significant season of the year, for if He had not come to us, He could not have died for us. We begin a new sermon series today called The Great ADVENTure. What an incredible time it must have been for everyone involved in the Christmas story; God choosing to become human. What love He expressed and what hope He gives.
The truth is that we can find the story of our lives in the story of Christ-mas. The Great ADVENTure of His coming impacts the adventure of our lives in many ways. Christ relates to us, today, right where we live. When we include Him in our lives, our lives can become a celebration of His coming as well.
Remember to Pray First! Visit our prayer room available each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. first floor of the Clark Building. Get quiet with God prior to Heritage Service. Drop-in, spend time praying for personal needs or for those on the prayer list provided.
Help support compassionate ministries around the world this Christmas season. Send your Christmas cards to Church members through our Christmas mailbox (located in the foyer of the Welcome Center).
