We have missed you all so much! We are so glad to be back to our regular schedule starting Wednesday, August 27th. Check it out by clicking on the tab above, or this link! Please note that our Wednesday night activities will end at 7:30pm this year. Also, make sure you are checking your kids in and out of their activities. We want to keep all our families safe at church.
And don't forget, EncounterKids, Sundays at 9:30am, with Encounter for adults at 9:40. We can't wait!!!
Looking for something new on Sundays? Come check out our new Encounter service, 9:40 on Sunday mornings. At Encounter, for our adults and teens, we are creating an informal, experiential, thoughtful and passionate place to connect with each other and together to come into the presence of God.
The first unit will be from the book of Ezekiel, and will be taught by several of our ministers. What happens when life doesn't work out the way you planned? Who's responsible? Where is God in all of this? If you have ever asked those questions (and let's face it, who hasn't?), then come Sunday morning to hear more. Also at 9:40 we are launching EncounterKids, the center of our Children's Ministry. At EncounterKids we are leading kids to see how God's word fits into their lives, to learn how talk to Him, and to build friendships that will last. This week we are learning about Respect.

Today we celebrated with Abbey, Darla, and their families as they followed Christ's example in baptism. Each of them was presented with an Ebenezer Stone and a card to mark the occasion.
"In Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11, and Luke 3:21-22 we are told of Jesus’ baptism. Today, in front of your family, friends, and church, you proclaimed, “Jesus is Lord,” and you were baptized following His
example. As you went under the water the pastor said the words,
“Buried in the likeness of Jesus’ death, raised to walk in a new way of life.” Your baptism marks the beginning of a lifelong journey of discipleship —allowing Jesus to be the Lord of everything that you do and say, being obedient to His commands, seeking to follow His will every day,
and becoming more and more like Him."
We are so proud of you, Darla and Abbey! We love walking with you as you learn to walk with Him.
