NEW BLOG POST: What's going on in the atrium at 9:45 a.m. for the next few Sundays? It's just one piece of our new programming for discipleship called The Walk - a new direction from what we've traditionally had for Spring and Fall Classes.
"Discipleship is a lifelong journey - this framework is designed to foster relationships where members walk alongside each other as they learn and grow in God. Leaning on Jesus calling in the disciples in Matthew 4, this new model is named The Walk to reinforce the model of discipleship rooted in trust, belief, growth and connection."

We're in the homestretch of the renovation of our education wing!

Last night, we had almost 275 people attend our worship service celebrating and affirming all marriages. We felt it was a meaningful and appropriate demonstration for our church's stance and position, and were proud to provide that time in worship for all who wanted to join.

Our JJ Rhoads volunteers received a big surprise last night during the school’s Christmas program - a special award just for our folks was part of the show! Our representatives were so surprised and pleased to receive this unexpected recognition! Our volunteers go over and above each week - this praise is well deserved! We are grateful for all our volunteers who give so much to this ministry.
Sundays in Advent are made even more special with our amazing choirs. Listen to our youth choir sing "Love Came Down At Christmas".

Last Sunday’s FirstGifts alternative gift market was a success! We had 21 agencies present to sell gift items and talk about their missions. More than $34,000 was raised -a 10 percent increase from last year - which will go to help fund the work of our partner agencies in 2020. Thanks to all who came and supported this great event!
On Thanksgiving week, Dr. Andy Stoker's focus on love and belonging delivered a powerful message that's important to remember this holiday season.
"Connection is belonging to one another. Love brings forth that kind of connection, but it is not a superficial love. Love is the ultimate “Yes” to belonging. We are showing a depth of Love for one another when we decide to stay together, even when things are difficult, even when the path forward is unclear, even when it seems that all hope is lost. No matter how difficult the conflict, how sharp our words become, it is belonging that will get us through."
