Christmas Eve Reflection

Whatever your normal traditions might be, why not change it up and add time of quiet on Christmas Eve? From 5-6:30 pm the building will be open for self-paced Communion and a looping slide show designed to slow you down on the holiest of nights. You can come for a few minutes, or an hour. You can bring children and help them take Communion. It’s candlelight and quiet, and one of my favorite events of the year!

Christmas Day Service

Even though Christmas falls on Sunday this year , we will still be having our usual Sunday morning service at 10:30 celebrating Jesus’ birth. No first hour classes, however.

Gift Cards for Members

Every December we collect gift card to assist with the vital needs of our members throughout the year. Gas and grocery cards are the most useful as we support each other through tough times. You can place these in the offering all through Advent.

This Week's Sermon

Today in the Word: A New Gameboard for A New Game (Philippians 3)

In this chapter the Apostle tells his own story of grace. He has to trade in every shred of his own goodness to gain a different kind of standing with God - one based not on his dedication and competence, but on God’s mercy. It’s an economy that goes against the grain of human nature and the world around us. It fits with our new citizenship in heaven, not with the rules of getting around down here.

ABFs @ 9:15 am

During our 9am hour we have two Adult Bible Fellowships that meet. SALT is for younger people (roughly up to 30 or so) who are in college or early in their careers. The other group, Seeking God’s Story, is in the more established stages of life. Either group is open to marrieds, singles, or married who come single. Both focus on informal discussion-oriented Bible study and application to real life.


Just a reminder that YAC is on break until January. Enjoy an Advent home group or spend the time as a family reflecting on Christ’s coming and return.
