Come, not because you are strong, but because you are weak.
Come, not because any goodness of your own gives you a right to come,
but because you need mercy and help.
Come, because you love the Lord a little and would like to love Him more.
Come, because Jesus loved you and gave himself for you.
Lift up your hearts and minds above your cares and fears and let this bread and cup be to you the token and pledge of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, all meant for you, if you will receive them in humble faith.
This church has had a rich and meaningful history. I hope you enjoy looking through this web site honoring the past, the dynamic leadership that moved this church forward in significant ways, and our exciting present. The future has opportunities and challenges filled with promise. The stewardship theme ďWe are Family,Ē reminds us as believers in Christ, we all belong to one family, Godís family. Stewardship is the commitment of all of our lives. It involves the use of all our resources and opportunities to achieve the kind of life and community God envisions. Stewardship begins with the recognition of Godís grace in our lives. God as the giver of all good gifts, calls individuals and communities of faith to be stewards of what we have received. In response to Godís gifts, we offer ourselves in personal discipleship and shared ministry. Everyoneís stewardship response is needed to enable this church to continue its ministry, and to grow in its outreach to others. Please always consider carefully and prayerfully your gifts, your needs, your resources and the needs of your church family. Consider the stewardship responses that are appropriate for you to make. Upheld by the Holy Spirit, as a faithful family, our faith journey into the future will bear witness to Godís new vision for us. Each person is important, your gifts, talent, and skills, and the financial resources you can share and give to Godís family, may God continue to bless all of us as we journey into the future together as a family of believers in Godís goodness and mercy.
The pastor is there to be a guide, an advisor, a listener, a counselor and a caring person in the name of Christ.
It was a service started by the early church to signify the gathering shadows around Jesusí last day before he was crucified.
Each candle that is extinguished signifies the growing darkness around his life. Removal of the Christ candle, signifies his death.
Ringing the bell 33 times, stands for the 33 years of Jesusí life.
When the Christ candle is brought back, this means that the light of Christ will overcome death.
