This weekend in worship, Dec. 15-16, is the third weekend of Advent, the season in the church year when we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Our Advent message series is titled Jesus: the Bridge. In this series we are looking at different ways Jesus is found in both the Old and New Testaments, and how he serves as a bridge to transform them into one, continuous story. In part 3, Pastor Scott Killgore will explore the concept of "covenant." Jesus speaks of "the new covenant in my blood," but what does he mean by that, and what of the "old" covenant? We'll explore those questions and maybe surprise you in the process.
Wednesday Night Dinners: Family Night Dinners are served at 6:00PM in the Social Hall. There is no charge, although donations are welcomed.
Some Ways To Connect...
Wednesday Night Adult Studies: On break until after the holidays. Pastor Scott Killgore is leads a Bible Study after the Family Night Dinner. His class meets in the Social Hall. He will begin a study of the Acts of the Apostles on January 16. Pastor Cindy Crouse also leads a Wednesday night Bible study. Her class meets in the Circle Drive area following the Family Night Dinner. On January 16, she will begin a study of Paul's letters to the Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians.
Women's Message Based Group: This fun group of ladies meet each Tuesday morning at 10:30 in the Circle Drive area and is led by Pastor Cindy. The group discusses the questions that are based on the previous weekend's sermon. These questions are prepared in advance and can be found on our website or you can pick up a copy that morning. Each Tuesday is a different topic so if your schedule only allows you to attend once in a while, you are certainly welcome! Contact person: Cindy Crouse. Email at email@example.com
