Summer Sermon Series

Beginning on May 31st and running for the duration of the summer, Pastor John will be preaching a sermon series which he has entitled “Debunking the World’s Lies.” Each week he will expose and examine a lie that we each hear frequently in our lives and may have even come to accept as true, and he will then counter the lie with the truth of God’s Word. Please plan to follow these sermons either in worship or on-line throughout the entire summer series.

Thailand Trek VBS – Sundays This Summer

Starting May 31, on Sunday mornings this summer from 9:30-10:30 am at Christ during Cross Culture Thailand Vacation Bible School, children age 3 – Grade 5 will explore Thai culture, experience God’s love for all people, and get excited about their walk with Jesus. The Bible-based, faith-igniting crafts, drama, games, missions, music, and snacks at Thailand Trek will be a world of fun, an unique opportunity to learn more about Christianity in the country of Thailand and how we as a Church support the Thailand Children’s Mission. The Bible Adventures from God’s Word about Creation, and Jesus’ Death, Resurrection, and Ascension, will help the children discover that the God of this universe is real, love, forgiving, and forever. The youth will once again help with various aspects of the VBS activities during their Bible Study of The Story. Please contact Jordan for more information on how to get involved in 2015 Thailand Trek VBS.
