How can we know how deeply rooted we are in Christ? This Sunday, Pastor Chris will continue the sermon series out of Colossians titled, "Growing Deeper, Living Stronger: Rooted in Christ." This week we will explore how our desire for Christ indicates how deeply rooted we are in Him. The title for this Sunday's message is "Deep Desires, Deep Roots," and we will be in Colossians 1:15-2:5. We hope that you will join us in person or online.

Operation Christmas Child - More Than A Toy Drive
Do you remember when you accepted Jesus as your Savior? We don’t often have the opportunity to share that experience. We welcome you to share your experience by writing a card about the decision to change your life and future. Sometimes, this is the most important thing in the shoebox. Dig out some of your prettiest Christmas cards from last year. Cut off the front cover and write about your salvation experience on the opposite side of the pretty picture. Talk about how old you were, how God has been faithful, how you are blessed knowing you have eternal life. Tell them you will pray for them to know Jesus as their Savior.

Parkade has mailed out letters from the deacons to the families that have been assigned to them. These deacons will assist their assigned families with any prayer needs that might arise. Please watch for your letter in the mail to know who your deacon is, and if you have not received one by the end of the week, please email the church office.
