A Christmas Candle

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away;
While quite unselfish, it grows small.

- Eva K. Logue

John the Baptist said of Jesus: "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." John 3:30 (NLT)

We are like candles that hold a flame, burning strong and bright the light of Christ. We softly give ourselves away, worshiping him and serving him, that we might become less and less, and that he might become greater and brighter through us.

Open House

We will be hosting an Open House on December 15 for Challenge, Foundations, and Essentials. Please let your friends know and invite them if they've already been to an information meeting and want to come check us out.

Christmas Party *NOTE CHANGE*

We will be having a Christmas party for all our classes from 12-1:30 instead of meeting later in the day. Challenge and Essentials will meet a half hour later (1:30 - 3:30) so that everyone can enjoy the party for an extended lunch. If you didn't get a chance to sign up for the potluck just bring what you'd like.


The makeup class for Essentials week 11 will be this Monday 9-11 am at the church.
