Longest Night Service, Wed 12/20, 7pm

This service, also referred to as a Blue Christmas Service, will be held here on Wednesday, December 20, at 7:00 p.m. With the dwindling daylight of December days and the coming of the winter solstice (the longest night of the year), we are reminded that the good news of the nativity arrives for us during the darkest season.

Also for many, the holiday season is a bittersweet time. Loss or change of any sort can cause the holidays to fall hard on our shoulders. To honor and mark both the joyous light of this season and the holy darkness in which it shines, we will gather together for worship and ritual that speaks of God’s great news in Jesus Christ that is given to a beautiful but broken-hearted world.

We mark this solemn and sacred time with simple songs, loving words and the lighting of prayer candles. Please invite someone you know who might want or need this service to come with you.

Vacation Bible School 2017

Hero Central: Discover Your Strength in God

‘Hero Central: Discover Your Strength in God’

Monday, July 24 – Friday, July 28 9 a.m. – Noon

With a closing celebration on Friday evening!

At VBS Hero Central, children (age 4 to 8th grade) will experience an interactive, energizing, Bible-based good time as they discover their strength in God. They will become Heroes and explore how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives.

After a high-energy opening assembly at Hero Central, the Heroes will make their way to the Bible Story Headquarters. Interactive Bible lessons reveal Hero Codes to equip your Heroes for an active life with God. Your Heroes will discover a Hero Verse (Bible memory verse) that will remain with them in their faith long after VBS.

The Heroes will expand on what they’ve discovered through a variety of activities: making their own art projects, singing new songs, exploring the wonders of creation at Science Headquarters, playing games, and enjoying tasty treats. Sign up today!
