Night of Worship & Super Bowl Sunday. February 3 is Super Bowl Sunday, which means we will not have the 6pm gathering. We are hosting a Night of Worship (NOW) on Saturday, February 2 at 6pm.

Adult Bible Class begins a new study on Sunday, February, 3. Adults of all ages are invited to get in on a new study from 1 John. In this 5-lesson series, you will hear from the disciple John as he writes to all Christians to help build up our faith. The Word class meets Sundays at 10:30am room 103.

Opportunities to Serve

Love Thy Neighborhood January Needs. The following items are needed for our Give 12 Campaign Community Partners: disinfectant wipes, toilet paper, size 6 baby diapers, and men’s shaving cream and shaving razors. Please place your donations on the Give 12 shelves in the church lobby.

Missions. If you would like to support the work of our service team going to Central America in April, you may help by donating to the Project cost of the trip. These funds will specifically help support the pastors of the Church of God congregations in Costa Rica, and their work in strengthening the organizational leadership of the church. Their hope is to build stronger relationships with one another so that pastors and churches will not work in isolation, but work together for the kingdom.
