HELP SPREAD THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS!

The youth are selling yard signs to help spread the word of Christmas. Each sign is available for $10. Our hope is to not only help raise funds for the youth but more importantly to proudly display our faith of the real meaning of this holiday season – Jesus Christ. Wouldn’t be awesome to see this message spread around our various communities and neighborhoods! See one of our youths and get yours today. Better yet get both!

Advent Sermon Series

During this advent season Pastor Charlie will be sharing a special sermon series based on the ghosts of Dickens’ Christmas Carol. Using brief clips from the various productions of this famous story we will explore Marley’s understanding of his business, how we live through our regrets of the past, what are the consequences of our choices today, what does the future look like and realizing things can be different. In all these we will consider the Good News that we celebrate throughout this advent and Christmas season.

Giving Survey

Giving Survey

The Finance Team is looking for your input to help us consider our giving and donation options that we make available to our congregation.

We simply ask that you take a moment to complete a very simple and brief survey that relates to giving to the church. (It is anonymous.) It relates to how we give to the church not about quantity.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance!
