Our News


We heard the last sermon this weekend for Seismic Sermon Series. It was a wonderful series about Saul/Paul's life and his love for Jesus. We met at Alison's house last night. Thank you Alison for opening up your house to us. Mike prepared the study last night based off last weeks sermon preached by Greg Holmes. We had a great discussion about building bridges to those who are not like us or in our circles. That we need to See, Feel & Act, and while acting we need to be Respectful, Compassionate & have Courage. We missed Kirstin, Kristen, Juan & Wendy!!

Next week will begin the White Elephant Series. The church is asking for everyone to bring a wrapped "white elephant" gift to church. You will drop off your gift when you get to church and will pick up a gift on your way out.
