‘The Red Letter’s: The Words of Jesus for Today’s World’ (A Six-Week Video Discussion Course with Tony Campolo and Colin McCartney: Starts Thursday September 25th 7.30 – 9.00 p.m. at the church.
Do we value the words of Jesus? Do we live his words? Through a series of six video conversations, Tony Campolo and Colin McCartney discuss the radical but clear teachings of Jesus. Together, they confront complacency and assert that the issues Jesus spoke directly about should be the priorities of God’s people. We will use their conversations as a starting point for our own discussions.

·      What is Red Letter Christianity? (Sept. 25th)
·      About Materialism (Oct. 2nd)
·      About Compassion (Oct. 9th)
·      About Politics (Oct. 16th)
·      About Spirituality (Oct. 23rd)
·      About Joy (Oct. 30th)

September 28, 2014 is Back to Church Sunday. This is your year to step out in faith and invite a friend, neighbor, co-worker, family member or whoever the Spirit might put in your path. It’s an opportunity to be creative and outgoing in welcoming, inviting people to come see who we are, a community who meets God in worship and lives with God in our lives.

We are inviting you and your children to join us for Spaghetti Church Saturday September 27th from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
In January of 2011, a group of us had a dream of a fun time where parents and kids could enjoy church together without having to be quiet and keep the place clean! Spaghetti Church was born on the last Saturday of January 2011 and has been a success ever since!
Spaghetti Church is church for families that enjoy a more informal, activity-centered and community-oriented way of worshipping together from time to time. It is held on the last Saturday of every month at 4:00 p.m., and it typically includes a craft or other activity time, a family-friendly worship and teaching time, and a simple meal (hence the spaghetti!). Please note that this is not something you can drop your kids off for; it is intended to be about families worshipping together, so all children must be accompanied by at least one parent or grandparent. Our theme this year is going to be “Creation”.
We have a signup sheet policy as food is prepared for all who will be coming, so please let us know (include the number of people who will be coming and, if you have not attended before, the ages of the children), or sign up on the sheet at the back of the church.
Spaghetti Church is only possible because the people who come volunteer to help out with the various tasks. At the end of each month's session we put out a job signup for the following month.
