Bible Verse of the Day

Dec. 02, 2021 @ 8:33 am

God’s Final Word: His Son

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.


Reverse Advent Calendar

Nov. 29, 2021 @ 10:47 pm

With the beginning of Advent starting on November 28th there are lots of great ideas for how to prepare for this season of expectancy. As a child, you may have counted down the days by using an Advent calendar. The idea with the Reverse Advent calendar is the opposite of what we would normally do. Instead of taking something out, the idea is to put something aside for Advent to give to someone else. This calendar allows the giver to fill a basket to be given to the Local Food Pantry after it is filled. Download your Reverse Advent Calendar here.


Poinsettia Orders

Nov. 29, 2021 @ 10:41 pm

You are invited to order poinsettias to help decorate the sanctuary for the Christmas season “in Memory” or “in Honor of.” We encourage you to do so early and appreciate your kindness in helping to make the sanctuary colorful for the Christmas Season. Poinsettias are $13.50 each and payment is due at the time of ordering. Click here for the order form. You can also pick up an order form on the desk in the Welcome Center.
