Join us for a new Saturday Night Service "Converge"with Dinner and Worship from 5:30pm - 7:00pm.
CONVERGE is an all ages, family style event combining dinner, music, fellowship, and fun in a fresh interactive format focused on relationship building. Building relationships with each other and most importantly, with Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit, will be the intentional focus throughout each part of the program.
We will be patterning ourselves off of how the early church organized itself in Acts 2: 42-47. Worshiping together, praying together, studying together, singing together, eating together, living with each other as the Body of Christ.
The program will change from week to week to keep it fresh. We will have shorter sermon sections, followed by table discussions and singing. The room will be arranged in a semi circle, with round tables to enhance discussions and relationship building. Children and teens will be lead in parallel activities that they will then share with the group at the end of the service.
The music will be coffee house style with one musician leading the service with up tempo, fun and joyful songs.
Join us to hear the word of the Lord in our different sermon series to show you there is hope in your life and in this world.

THE ART OF NEIGHBORING
BY GOD'S GRACE- YOU CAN (series about civil conversation, positive political action, etc)
SEPTEMBER 3 - Labor Day
MOSES: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE RELUCTANT PROPHET
OCTOBER 1 - World Communion Sunday
There is a new 8 week study on the "The Lord's Prayer" by Douglas Connelly, beginning July 16th Sunday at 10:45am in Don Lowe Chapel as part of the Adult Bible Study Class.
When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, he gave them the Lord's Prayer. Yet for some of us the Lord's Prayer is simply a formal prayer that we only repeat during Sunday morning worship. If so, we are missing out on a rich resource for our spiritual lives. This study guide unpacks the Lord's Prayer section by section with additional texts that help us go deeper into Jesus' teaching about how we should pray.
