Power Outages Coming This Week

Thu. 1/24 - Fri. 1/25

This Thursday and Friday (1/24-1/25) mark another big step forward in our Creating Spaces construction work…the relocation of some of our utilities! Please note: it’s likely this will cause temporary electrical outages – on Thursday in the Kids Connect and Sola middle school areas, and on Friday in the main building (including auditorium, offices, phones, and Internet). Please join us in praying for safety for the work crews and that everything will be back up and running in plenty of time for Sunday.

God. Life. Faith. What’s the Point?
Connection Point Groups logo 1-18-19.jpg

Sun. 1/20 or 1/27, Foyer

If you are new to the Christian faith, just checking it out, or coming back to church after some time away, a Connection Point group is a great first step. This 8-week conversational small group offers a chance to explore faith and experience community. Your curiosity deserves a conversation. Connection Point groups will meet here at the church building during 9 & 11 a.m. gatherings beginning in February. The small group aspect is crucial, so openings are limited. Come see us in the foyer Sun. 1/20 or 27 to learn more or to sign up.
