Sacred Renewal . . . .  We are nearing the time in January that is being set aside for a time of renewal. This renewal is regarded as a sacred time. The purpose of this time in January is to step out of our ordinary daily routines and schedules to focus in a concentrated way on our relationship to God and one another.

 

There are several special congregational worship services and times of praise, confession, and repentance we desire all to experience. The elders’ desire is that everyone make an effort to be present on Sunday morning, January 11. The next time we will gather as a congregation will be Wednesday night, January 14, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. We will have individuals outside the congregation to provide child care - we do not want any of our members to miss out on these important meetings!  We are calling upon our entire congregation to be a part of this Sacred Renewal.

 

 

Audio-Visual Help Needed  --  If you would like to learn how to assist in the audio-visual department for our Sunday services, please contact Dan Beeks or Darren Dixon.
