Upcoming Events

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.

Kingdom Quest – Wednesday, August 19

If you are willing to volunteer again or for the first time with Kingdom Quest and The Story Youth Bible Study in 2015-2016 as shepherds/teachers, puppeteers, and with special projects, or wish to find out more about our Sunday morning ministry, we’d love for you to be a part of our annual volunteer interest meeting on Wednesday, August 19 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Christ. Pizza will be provided. There will be an activity for children and youth who attend with their parents.

Rally Day – Sunday, September 13
