Monday, September 28
The Youth’s Small Group “Dig” meets at 6:30 PM. Sage Moody is leading a study on the Gospel of Matthew.
Wednesday, September 30
We invite all YOUTH in Grades 6-12 to meet at 6:30 p. m. in our youth group, Fusion! Sage Moody will lead the group in a time of fun, fellowship, and study.
Along with Fusion (Grades 6-12), we also have small groups for children of all ages and adults which begin at 6:30 PM.
The adults Wednesday small groups are studying “We Speak – Proclaiming Truth in an Age of Talk.” Some of us speak out in our workplaces, others in our schools or neighborhoods. Our audiences may vary in size, but we are all called as witnesses. Pastor Mike Baker puts it like this: “Jesus himself has commissioned each of us to be a witness for his kingdom. And every believer has a faith testimony—a story of how Jesus has made all the difference—compelling us to be his representatives.” This Bible study is based off of this year’s theme at the NACC, North American Christian Convention. Come, Connect.

Sunday, October 4
At 9:30 AM, we have Bible Study and Sunday School for all ages. Our children from new-borns through 5th grade meet in the education wing of the Main Building (go in through the side door). Enthusiastic and prepared teachers look forward to teaching your children. Our youth in Grades 6-12 meet in their Sunday School class which is also off of the education hallway.
We have two adult Sunday School classes. One meets in the Main Building while the second class meets in the Fellowship Hall.
At 10:30 AM, adults meet in the Worship Center to sing praises to God, share in the Lord’s Supper, and study God’s word together. Children from infants through 5 years old meet in the education wing for a time of crafts and games. Children in Grades 1-5 meet in the Worship Center for the first half of the worship service. During the Message time, they join the younger children in the education wing for an age-appropriate lesson time of their own.
Our messages for September and October will develop the theme: “We Speak – Proclaiming Truth in an Age of Talk.” Some of us speak out in our workplaces, others in our schools or neighborhoods. Our audiences may vary in size, but we are all called as witnesses. These messages are based on the book of the same title by Mike Baker, J. K. Jones, and Jim Probst. We’ll also be studying the themes in our small groups on Wednesday night at The Connection. Below are the messages for September and October.
