Christmas Eve Services

Come and join us this Friday for three opportunities to worship with family and friends.  The times are 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.  Each worship service will be approximately one hour in length. They will include familiar carols, wonderful music, a short, relevant message and candle lighting.  The 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. services will provide childcare for those under age 3.  The 11 p.m. service is acoustic with softer lighting and is great for those who have to work on Christmas Eve.

We will be taking a special offering for Christ Birthday offering and for our international water project. All proceeds will go toward these two efforts to help change a life!  Invite others to join you this Christmas Eve!

28 Days to Live

What if you only had 28 days to live?  How would your life be different?  Would you take that trip you have procrastinated? Would you do something adventurous? Would you eat incredible amounts of food? Would you have that conversation with a special person? Would you draw closer to God?  What would you do?

Starting Monday, November 1 we’ll be spending time seeing what God can do when you make commitments to Him.  Read through the book of Mark following the guide below:
