Fear attacks us right where our faith lives and keeps us from stepping into the plans God has for us.  Created for the Christmas season, Fear Not helps us overcome fear and transform it into faith and obedience.  With messages on the angels’ visits to Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds, Fear Not assures us that God will always give us the guidance we need to reject fear.
Dec 21st Advent Sunday - "Afraid of What God Might Ask Me To Do" (1 Tim 1:7; Luke 1:26-3)Rev. Jenn Wagar

HOPE IN THE DARK – Believing God is Good when life is not  |  Oct 21 – Nov 4, 2018

Can God be good when life is not? When life hits hard, it plunges us into a sea of questions we hoped we’d never have to ask. But when you feel broken, abandoned, and struggling to find answers, there’s a beacon in the storm. A message series focusing on the book of Habakkuk, Hope in the Dark shows us how we can cling to God even when our circumstances are overwhelming because He will carry us through the storm.

THIS IS WHO WE ARE  |  Sept 16 – Oct 14, 2018

Heavenly Father, We ask that you would help us to put JESUS FIRST every day, in every situation we face. Give us the courage and words to TELL YOUR STORY of love and grace to the people we meet. Give us a desire to SPEND TIME DAILY IN PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE as these connect us with You and equip us for every life situation. Father, show us our part in contributing to the UNITY OF THE FAMILY where we help each other to connect with You and grow in faith! Finally, as You have been so generous to us, help us to be generous to others as we SHARE YOUR GOODNESS through our time, talents and treasures within our church and beyond. In the Name of Jesus, through the Power of the Holy Spirit – Amen!
