Busy sermon series image: reconnecting with an unhurried God

Worship in the Park, scheduled for today (9/15/19) has been moved to the church due to rain. Worship will still begin at 10am.

Sermon Series: "Love Comes to Town"

When love comes to town, lives are changed!

We are called to share the love of Christ with our neighbors and our family and yes, even our enemies! Throughout August and September, we will be going through I Corinthians 13 during our sermon series and discovering more about sharing the love of God.

Upcoming sermons include:

  • September 1 - Triggered (Dealing with Anger)
  • September 8 - Like a Good Neighbor (Be the Church Sunday)
  • September 15 - Love Everlasting (Worship in the Park)

As a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we believe:

-the Bible to be the inspired word of God and the foundation of our faith.

-in a strong emphasis on the teaching and preaching ministry – learning and growing in faith.

-each time we gather in worship, we remember that Jesus died for us and is alive today. Communion is central to who we are as a people of faith, drawing us close to the Lord and to each other.

-that prayer is our vital link to our Lord and Savior.

-we are called to reach out to help our neighbors, both here and around the world through our gifts of time, talent and money.

-we are stewards of all our God-given resources and believe in tithing (proportionate giving) to the ministry of God’s people.

-every life is precious to God. We value each other and celebrate the unique gifts God has placed into each life. We celebrate diversity in the midst of unity in Christ. Ministry to all ages and stages in life is important.
