From Sunday school classes to small groups, children and student events, volunteer opportunities and everything in between you can find it here.

Upcoming

Lenten Study: The Good of Giving Up

Lent, the season when we reflect on the humility of Jesus and go deep into ourselves to be closer to Him is upon us. During Lent Bonhomme will be devoting prayer, study and conversation to Aaron Damiani’s book, “The Good of Giving Up – Discovering the Freedom of Lent.” In his book Damiani writes in Lent “we enter the wilderness, to get to the Promised Land.” Copies of The Good of Giving Up – Discovering the Freedom of Lent are available in the Book Nook and February 17, 24 and March 3 in Kilby Commons. If you aren’t already connected to a small group, you can join a Lenten Study Group by visiting HERE or join on Sunday mornings in Kilby Commons. As a great follow-up or concurrently in studying The Good of giving Up, Pastor Phil also recommends, “A Hunger for God” by John Piper, available in the Book Nook.

SEALS Monthly Lunch

To celebrate Don Everts’ ordination we, as a church, sent Don and his wife, Wendy, on a tour of the Holy Land.

Come hear about some of the “lessons from on the ground”. Several instructive slides will be shown!
 
Lunch: $8. Reservations needed by March 29. Call Irma at the Church Office, 636-532-3486 or >Email
