As we approach the advent season, many of us will be preparing for company. The holidays are a wonderful time and often bring distant friends and family together for quality time to celebrate the coming of our Lord. Many of us are anticipating a lot of joy, laughs, and great food. Tables will be set and houses adorned with shining lights and many shades of green, red, and white. The glowing Christmas trees reminds us of the tree of life who is Christ. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Next Sunday, September 17th, is our annual “Back to Church Sunday”. Summer is winding down, the kids are heading back to school and we are kicking off our Fall season with a special service and time of fellowship.
After a time away, such as many of us have had this summer, it is good to come back together and remember who we are and what we believe.
We are united under the Gospel of Jesus Christ as one body. We have common beliefs, purposes and goals, and spending time together strengthens our bonds, drawing us closer together and helping each of us to sharpen our faith “…as iron sharpens iron.” (Proverbs 27:17 NIV) Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
