Calling all Scouts!

kthomasFirst News, Upcoming Events

Scout Sunday will be February 10 where we will highlight the ministry of scouting to boys and girls participating in the various sponsoring organizations. We invite anyone interested in helping lead in worship to contact William Evans at wgevans842@gmail.com. We will have opportunities for scouts of all ages to lead in reading scripture, greeting, ushering, and so much more. In addition, we will be collecting canned food to “scout out hunger.” Scouts will have bags available prior to February 10 for people to fill with much needed food to help with food insecurity in our zipcode. More information on food needs to come. Scouts will help unload the food and sort the food on February 10 to scout our hunger in our community!

New Sermon Series

kthomasFirst News, Upcoming Events

Our culture is all about personal pronouns and private property. But Scripture reveals that everything we have is a gift from God, on loan from heaven for a few years. For those of us who have so much on loan from God, how is God calling us to live? Starting January 27 we will have a brand new message series called “A Year In God’s Presents.” Together, we will explore Jesus’ call on our lives to be generous and to bless the world around us.
