Come Together | Advent & AoG Week 1

Advent
(from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming”)

Advent is the period of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the
Nativity of Jesus, in other words, the period immediately preceding Christmas.

Christians believe that the season of Advent serves a dual reminder of the original waiting that was done by the Hebrews for the birth of their Messiah as well as the waiting that Christians today endure as they await the second coming of Christ.

This Christmas let’s Come+Together in anticipation of Christ’s coming!

Join us November 26th ~ December 17th at 9:30 or 11:00am this advent season and may you truly find His hope, peace, joy, and love.

Are You Ready | Week 6

There are so many situations and seasons that we face as we live out our lives.

Most of us never feel quite ready as we experience the up, downs, and uncertainty that is often a part of our families, work, school, and church. The changes and transitions that we can find ourselves working through are not always planned or welcomed, but we are left trying to navigate them and decide what our next steps are in order to move forward.

The hope we have is that God knows every detail of these events and moments in our lives. He is never surprised. He is always ready to respond and help us move forward toward His plans and goals. God wants to prepare us – so that we are in the place where we are ready when he asks us to “go”, or “do”, or “be a part of.”

Are we looking for God and what He wants in our lives – our families – our communities – and our church? When He moves and speaks – are we ready to be a part of it?

Orphan Sunday

Orphan Sunday

On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that has no family…to visit orphans in their distress.
Each event is locally-led. Sermons and small groups, concerts and prayer gatherings, shared meals and youth activities—each rousing believers with God’s call to care for the orphan, and what we can do in response. From many sources, one voice. Each November, thousands of events will echo across America
and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God’s great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well. Orphan Sunday is your opportunity to rouse church, community and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan speaks.

Listen as Pastor Adam talks with a local foster family and learn about what you can do to be a ‘father to the fatherless’.
