*CALL TO WORSHIP

A voice comes from heaven and calls us beloved.

Water washes over us and we are changed.

A voice tells us we are precious in God’s sight.

Our love, praise, and gratitude greet the Spirit who blesses

us in baptism.

Let us worship the One who calls from the water – the God of love

and transformation.

We will have a meeting on Tuesday January 12th at 5:30pm to discuss the January service.  We are asking for those that served in 2015 to help with this service since your background checks have already been completed.

Current Message Series: Going Places

For the next 5 weeks we are going places! We are going to Vegas to talk about temptation and going fishing to talk about sharing the gospel. We are also going into darkness to talk about the unknown and into the woods to talk about coming home. Finally, we are going to the desert to talk about being alone. If you think about it, we are all going places. All of us are going someplace when we die, but all of us are also going places while we are alive. Have you ever been tempted? Have you ever been too scared to share the gospel or too fearful to take a step of faith? Have you strayed from God and had a hard time finding your way back home? Have you ever felt alone? Most of us have all been to these places in our lives and many times we don't know what to do or how to please God when we find ourselves without answers.

Current Message Series: Witness

In the first week of Witness we look into the story of David and Goliath. David stood up to his giant Goliath — and won! Sometimes we will face “giants,” but God will give us the courage to defeat them and overcome. Week two dives into the story of Abigail. She confronts King David and stands up for her husband because of what she believes is right. God will give us the strength to stand up for what is right. The third week focuses on the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They don’t bow down and worship the king when everyone else did. Because of that, they get thrown into the fiery furnace. But God keeps them safe. God will give us the courage to stand up for our faith even when it seems like we are the only ones. In the fourth week we look at the story of Moses. God calls Moses to do something that he doesn’t want to do because he feels insecure. But God uses Moses to perform miracles. God will give us the courage to do great things even when we doubt ourselves. The fifth and final week of Witness is the story of Jesus. Jesus sacrificed Himself and died on the cross for the good of the world that He loved so much. God will give us the courage to give up things we love for things we love even more.
