There is a TIME for everything, a SEASON for every activity under heaven .... God has made everything beautiful in its TIME.
Ecclesiastes 3: 1; 11


Your life is not one fluid, unobstructed movement of progress. Rather, it's a collection of different times and seasons, highs and lows, abundance and deserts, fulfillment and unrest. The calendar tells us that the winter season and Christmas season is fast approaching. But personally, what SEASON are you in right now? Join us for our current preaching series that looks to God's Word to equip us to see something beautiful and productive in every season. This Sunday's message is called "Weathering Winter," (read John 15:1-8).


I sincerely hope you make the most of the Christmas season. Use this as an opportunity to express your priorities in worship. Participate and pray this Saturday for our Noel Project to bless hundreds of area children with gifts and the good news of Jesus. Attend and invite others to Christmas Sunday services on December 21 and a special Candlelight Christmas Eve celebration on December 24 at 7 pm.


Celebrating Jesus as the Reason for this Season,
