Join us for a delicious breakfast followed by a Christmas program directed by our youth. Bring your friends, neighbors and coworkers. This is a ticketed event and tickets will be available in two weeks.
December Sermon Series
At its core, Christmas is the celebration of “presence.” The incarnation reveals the importance God places on being fully present. When was the last time you were fully present? Fully present with your family? Fully present at work? Fully present in worship? Fully present in prayer?
The demands of our busy schedules require us to show up for all kinds of things. But there is a difference between “showing up” and being present. It’s easy to show up. It’s harder to be present. Technology doesn’t help. It just enables us to be even more distracted and less present. All this can leave us feeling overwhelmed and empty.
This is a message series for those whose schedules are full, hearts are distracted, and souls are thirsty. If you can relate, then this series is for you.
We are looking for some bakers to help our youth group with our upcoming “Cookie Walk” fundraiser. We are asking that you bake two to five dozen cookies or more to bring to church on Sunday morning, December 8. They can be any kind of cookie, however more variety is better. More information to follow.
