New Sermon Series

Join us Sunday for our regular service times this Sunday, 9am Modern and 11am Traditional, as Pastor Eric kicks off our new series: Pandemic Lessons Learned.
Jesus Unmasked
Resuming Jan. 12, noon

You are invited to a mid-week study that will start back up January 12th, led by
Brad Sherrill which will be meeting in a hybrid in-person/virtual format. Jesus
Unmasked is a class that engages participants in the words of Jesus and asks
us to consider how these words may carry direction and meaning for us today.

Join the Choir!

Did you enjoy the music during Advent and Christmas? Then now is the time to come bring your talents to the Chancel Choir! Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:00pm in the Music Room. We have some wonderful music planned for Lent and Easter. Join us! Contact Allen Barbee for details.
Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies needs your help to get our pantry ready for the spring semester! We are currently filling 28 backpacks a week for students at Huntley Hills Elementary that feed kiddos (and their families) over the weekend. Our biggest needs include ongoing donations of proteins (like Vienna sausages, tuna packets, or shelf-stable meals), pastas (mac and cheese cups, ravioli cups, or ramen noodles), and Milk (non-refrigerated, shelf milk). Donations can be dropped off at the church anytime during office hours and can be placed on the cart labeled "Please put Backpack Buddies Donations HERE" which will be in the atrium for the next few weeks. Thank you for your continued support of children in our community and the Backpack Buddies ministry! Let Erin know if you have any questions. 
Community Dinner

The January 5 Community Connect Dinner has been canceled due to the rising concerns over COVID. We hope to resume in February.
Wednesday Lunch

Wednesday lunch is canceled for the entire month of January and the first two weeks of February. When we return we will eat, depending on weather, in the serving area of the kitchen or the outdoor pavilion by the kitchen.
Thank you for your continued giving and generous hearts!
