Fellowship Time Update

Fellowship time

As we mentioned previously, our Fellowship Committee has been looking at ways to enhance our Fellowship Time, without making it a burden as far as provisions and clean up.

We are excited about some changes that will take place in early February and will hopefully make the experience better for all concerned. We hope you will plan to visit and spend time with our church family, in between whichever worship service you prefer.

Thank you for all the wonderful ideas, we hope you enjoy this special time each Sunday.

Sunday, January 27

Faith Around the Beltway

Are you tired of going nowhere in life?  Do you feel frustrated by the end less brake lights, leaving you “stuck” and backed up?  Then join us as we explore ways to avoid the delays and move intentionally into God’s expressway.  Get going by knowing and showing there is a better way!

January 27th Sermon: Vital Signs

Traffic signs are a part of our everyday experience.  Most are there for our safety, others are there for informational purposes.   Our faith presents us with signs every day, as well.  How might we combine the two exposures, so we are constantly reminded of God’s love and our need for obedience?
