NEW MESSAGE SERIES: WITHOUT FAITH
At the heart of the Christian life is our faith in Jesus and faith in the Word of God. Faith is like a muscle—it develops. It can be strengthened. It can be weak or it can be strong. It depends on how much you use it. If you have a weak faith, then don’t miss this message series. How does God build my faith? He uses a very predictable pattern, a very predictable process. If you understand it, you can cooperate with it. This might be the most important series we do this year, because, without faith, it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11.6.
At the end of the service this Sunday and as part of our worship, we focus on what Jesus did for use on the Cross. He gave his life—symbolized by the bread—to take the punishment of my sin upon himself…He took my place. He shed his own blood—symbolized by the cup—to pay in full the penalty of my sin. At the Cross He poured out his grace and his mercy on each of us. Come join us this Sunday to thank God for his Son Jesus who gives us new life.

Parenting is one of the most rewarding and can be one of the most challenging assignments given to adults. Sometimes we think we are alone in our struggles to provide a right path for our kids. The Parenting Forum is designed to give a platform for parents to better understand their child and to receive some encouragement in their calling to train up their child in the way they should go. We invite parents and grandparents to this forum on Sunday, October 11 @ 11:30 AM in The Commons. Lunch will be provided. The forum is led by Brent Rolsten and Colt Harrington. Please let one of the leaders know if you plan to attend.
