Baptism Orientation: Sunday, July 31st after each service.

Baptism Orientation

Baptism is one of our first steps of obedience after we begin to trust and follow Jesus. If you are following Jesus and have never been baptized, we encourage you to take a step to identify yourself with Him publicly through baptism. On July 31, take 5 minutes to go to the Next Step Desk in Main Street and go through a brief baptism orientation after the service you attend.

At the Next Step desk orientation, you will connect with one of our volunteers, who will give you some information about how to get baptized in August at Union Center, and will be available for any baptism questions you might have.

Celebration on the Lawn: Sunday, August 21st at 10:30 a.m.

Celebration on the Lawn

Our God is good. Every day he showers us with his mercy and fills our hearts with his love. Every Sunday we gather as family to celebrate his goodness and call upon his faithfulness with dependence. However, our celebration often takes the shape of two families rather than one, some of us leaving as the rest of us are gathering. While this fits our schedules and family rhythms throughout the year, we miss the great joy of being a single family. However, when we gather as a single family, everyone praising, when we gather around the table, everyone feasting, when we share and hear the stories of those we normally do not see we catch a glimpse of eternity, an eternity spent with God and one another. When we gather as one people, we catch a glimpse of our future, a future that is possible in our present. We invite you to come together as a single family on Sunday, August 21st at 10:30. Let’s come and lift our voices in praise and our prayers in celebration. Let’s come and gather around the banquet table and together let’s catch a glimpse of the great joy which God has in store for us.

Rural Poverty Simulation: Sunday, October 16th at 4:30 p.m.

Rural Poverty

As the Church, we carry hope and love to a hurting world starting with our neighbor. However, our neighbors often cannot receive the hope and love we offer because they cannot understand us as we are approaching them. We might live next door but our realities, our understandings of the world, the very language we speak are often worlds apart. Rather than shrugging and saying, “They just are not interested,” perhaps we should ask “Who is my neighbor?” “What is their reality?” “What is it like to live in their shoes?” When we ask these questions and seek their answers, we find we are able to have common ground and the gospel and hope we offer are met with open arms.

We invite you to join us as we spend an evening seeking to understand our neighbor, specifically the most vulnerable of our neighbors, the rural poor. Our area of ministry is filled with people for whom poverty is an everyday challenge, a challenge that isn’t overcome simply by working harder. We will spend an evening seeking to experience a month in their shoes so we might understand the realities of their everyday lives and pursue together as the Church how we might seek the restoration of all things including the lives of our neighbor with the hope of the gospel. Pre-registration is encouraged and may be completed at the Resource Center or by calling the office.
