Come on out to the workday this Saturday! If you can spare even an hour, there is work both indoors and outdoors! 8:30am-2:00pm. Please bring any rakes, shovels, tarps, leaf blowers, or work gloves you may have. All ages welcome. Lunch is provided! See more details here.

Join the Baptism Team: Are you looking for your place to serve? We are need of 1-2 more people willing to help make our baptisms happen. This involves assisting at the beginning of a baptism service with practical logistics (handing a towel, turning off lights, etc) and potentially overseeing the filling and emptying of the baptismal pool.

Rebellion’s Influence
Pastor Jack unpacked the “triad of triads” that Jude uses in verses 11-13 to demonstrate how a rebellious heart influences others. Instead, we are to be good influencers, who are “moist”: models, orthodox, with integrity, sociable, and teachable. Listen to “Rebellion’s Influence” to learn more about these traits.
