FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle Reader,

Love your enemies. It's one of the most counter intuitive things the gospel preaches. Tolerance is one thing, but am I really called to love them, THEM! That's asking too much of us. But what is impossible for people is possible with God. Come be immersed in God's creativity, passion and love, and feel it maybe, just maybe soak into the dry, desolate places within you. It may just change your life!

Pastor Grant

Children of Christ Sunday
The first Sunday of every month is being designated as Unity Sunday. We will worship together at 9:00 am with Sunday School following at 10:00 am.

Be sure to wear your name tags so we can all get to know each other. 
Be sure to fill out the Who's Who in the Pews and look to see who else is sitting in your pew. This process  will provide members and visitors the opportunity to let us know if they have current needs with prayers, visits, membership, or other requests found through the form.
Please take a minute to fill out the Unity Worship Survey. Everyone's voice matters as we move forward, together, as we Share Christ's Love with Joy! Thank you for participating!

Come and begin the journey, joining your group to dive deep into an Old Testament text of salvation. Explore it. Wrestle with it. And finally share the heart of it in a creative way!

As with last year, we will be sharing at a "Holy Salvation (Batman) Extravaganza" with celebrity judges and fabulous prizes!
Make our Vacation Bible School the mane event! This epic African adventure engages the whole herd. At Roar, kids explore God's goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life.
