January 21 Service: Hymnal Display: As the inaugural event of our church’s Sesquicentennial,  our Celebration of Music and Musicians on January 21 will include a display of hymnals, from oldest to newest, on a table in the Narthex.If you have an old hymnal, please consider displaying it fill out the form available at the Welcome Center and place it with your hymnal. It will be helpful if those hymnals can be brought to the church office by January 18th. When viewing the hymnal display, please be gentle with these books. 


Tuesday Morning Bible Study begins Jan. 9th at 9:30 a.m. a 6-week study of Adam Hamilton’s The Walk and welcomes anyone new in search of a small group to discuss scripture with us. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith. This book can be ordered from Thrift Books, Amazon, Hoopla, or Cokesbjury. Prices vary.


Church Photos: If you have any photos to share about church events —  small group dinners or lunches, mission activities, musicians, worship services, etc., please send them digitally to Rev. Matt. (

WOMEN’S SPIRITUALITY RETREAT May 3-5, 2024 The new location for our Women’s Retreat is Ponderosa Retreat Center in Larkspur (15235 S. Furrow Road). It’s a beautiful location set among Ponderosa Pines with sleeping facilities and gathering spaces within the same building. An extra plus: a chef who presents wonderful meals! Mark your calendar now!

Church Directory: One of the nice things about the program we are using for the photo directory is that we can update it at any time. I would like to update it so we can print the updated adenium mid. January. If you have questions speak to Pastor Matt.

Youth Valentine Card Sales: Once again this year the youth will be selling Valentine Cards between services from Sunday January, 21st to Sunday February, 11th. There will be a variety of options ranging from $5-$10. All proceeds will help offset costs for this year's youth mission trip to Puerto Rico!
