What Is God?

If you’re having trouble answering that question, we’ve got the class for you.

Sunday School starts back up on January 6, 2019 at 9:30am in the Woman’s Club garden. We are spending a year in the New City Catechism strengthening our understanding of the core doctrines of Christianity.

For the new Christian, come and learn what you believe. For the veteran Christian, clarify and sharpen your convictions.

Attending Sunday School is our #1 recommendation for each of you. We grow more when we learn together.

But if you can’t, there are a couple of other ways to engage with this material:

  • Use the web app or mobile app to take yourself through the catechism. There are 52 questions and answers, one for each week of the year. Memorize the question and answer for each week and engage with the material they provide. There is also a devotional to help you meditate and apply what you’re learning.

  • Make time for your family to go through it together and utilize the New City Catechism for kids.

The more we learn about God, the more we love Him.

Let Our Neighbors Know About Christmas Eve

An Easy Way To Spread The Word

Help us distribute invitations to our Christmas Eve service. You can always do it the old-fashioned way by telling them in-person. But those of you Facebook users can head to the event page, hover over the “Share” button, then click “Share as Post.” You know the rest.

As you invite, pray that God would draw precious souls who need the hope of the gospel.

May Our City Meet Our Savior

Did You Fast With Us In 2018?

Foodless Fridays Are Over

Every year we challenge you to form a new discipline or practice. In years past we read 12 books in 12 months, challenged you to attend church 52 times in one year, and to read through the entire Bible in a year. For 2018 we fasted on the first Friday of each month and prayed for God to work in specific ways.

We Want To Celebrate

For those of you who participated we want to say, “good work!” We also want to celebrate the ways God answered your prayers.

Fill Out the Form If You Completed 9 out of the 12 First Friday Fasts

You’re on the honor system. Fear God more than man and complete the form below if you fasted 9 of the Fridays in 2018. We will be in touch about the celebration.

Why Small Groups?

This Is Your Ministry

Small Groups are not one ministry in the life of our church, they are the ministry. Like breathing, these groups provide oxygen to our relationships with one another. They facilitate discipleship. They provide a context for us to help one another become more like Jesus.

We’ve begun a short series on the question, “Why small groups?” This is the next installment.

Reason 3: Our Need For Correction

Do you enjoy being told you are wrong? Not many people do.

But it’s a necessary part of Christian discipleship. Our thoughts and our lives need to change. They need to be further aligned to God’s thoughts and His ways. We need to better reflect the image of Jesus.

God often uses others to point out the areas we need to change. My thinking and living is not air-tight. It needs refinement.

Engaging with my small group means the way I think about my life, God, and others will regularly be challenged. Simply by listening to others describe their challenges and decisions I am forced to re-evaluate my own. Not to mention the times when another Christian will “speak the truth in love” to me directly.

This is healthy and good. It’s a foundational reason we have small groups. God has designed and equipped us to help one another change.

Ok, I’m ready to join a small group.
