News & Announcements

2021 SERMON/WORSHIP SERIES: ROUTE 66 : This series is an epic, one-year road trip through the Bible. Route 66 was originally a highway that became one of the most famous roads in the United States. It ran from Chicago to Santa Monica, California from 1926 until 1985. For many years it served as the primary route for those who were migrating west looking for a better life. In a similar way, our journey through the 66 books of the Bible is the route to a better life. More than that, to life itself because it leads us to Jesus Christ. 48 of the most important stops on the way through the Bible have already been mapped out. We won’t have much time to spend in any one place. We have places to go and people to meet.
SUNDAY MORNING ADULT BIBLE STUDY: finishes it’s top-ten weird Bible stories this week. A video-based study begins next week, Oct. 3rd , titled- “Cultures in Conflict”. This study will bring the Bible to life as we learn from Scripture how to live in a culture where the worldview conflicts with Christianity. This study meets Sunday mornings in the
fellowship hall from 9:30-10:30.
SUNDAY SCHOOL: "Christ, in all things! Col. 1: 16-17 All children, parents too, are invited to join us! Today, from Matthew 3 & John 1: 29-34, we learn of the pointing prophet, John the Baptist, proclaiming Christ, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!" He baptizes Jesus and a loud voice from heaven says, "This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased." When Jesus took our sin upon Himself in Baptism, He put His holy life on all of us. His Baptism makes our Baptism special. We are joined to Jesus. He gave us His Holy Spirit. He made us part of His Church. Family challenge: Talk about confession and absolution in church. During Confession, the Pastor leads us in asking God to forgive us. During Absolution, he tells us God forgives us for Jesus' sake.
Next week: All are invited to hear us sing He's got the whole world in His hands before the second service. The children will point to Jesus!
