Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

Wow!  Winter is definitely back!
And a February thaw is on the way.

In order to optimize our church calendar, we made a small adjustment to our worship schedule and this Sunday morning we will be celebrating Cadet Sunday.

Sunday, February 3
At 9:30, we pause our E100 series (Essential 100 stories of the Bible) in order to celebrate Cadet Sunday.  [If you need some time to catch up on your E100 readings – this is the week!]
This Sunday we hear God’s call to “Be a Blessing” and will explore the keys to Growing a Generous Heart from I Corinthians 9.
At 5:00, we continue our series on Paul’s letter to Titus.  As we begin chapter 3, we will answer the question, “How do Christians Live Like Christians?”.

Sunday Morning Prayer Summit is Coming Soon!

Sunday, February 17, you are invited to gather for a Sunday Morning Prayer Summit…Spirit-Led, Worship-Fed, Bible-Based, Corporate Prayer from 11:00-11:45 in the Council Room.  We will join together in silent prayer, spoken prayer, song, and scripture reading–praising God and praying for our church and community.  We will gather again on Sunday, March 17 and Sunday, April 28.
