Congratulations to Eric and Danielle Mtika on the birth of their son, Malachi on January 2, weighing 8 lbs 6 oz and 20 inches long.  Join us on Tuesday, 1/19 for our first Virtual Prayer Rally  of the year at 7pm on WebEx .

Virtual Winter Game Night, Church's Mission, Prayer Rally (Pastoral Emphasis for 1/10)

Join us for our next Virtual Game Night on Saturday, January 16th, at 6 pm. We are going to play a virtual version of the word game Scattergories . The deadline to register on Realm is TODAY .  The mob violence that happened at the Capitol last week is just another reason for the church to be about her mission. Human depravity was on full display. This is why our purpose to worship Christ, spread the Gospel, and serve the community is vitally important. The hope for our nation is not politics or the government but Jesus Christ . The church must not let current events distract us from our mission of making disciples . And a part of the church's mission includes prayer . The church is to be the Lord's house of prayer. So mark your calendar for our first Virtual Prayer Rally on the 19th at 7pm ET on WebEx .  If you can't make it, you can submit your prayer requests online . Join us for an hour of prayer.
