Jesus Christ. Is he just a character from history? A mythological figure? Does he have anything to do with my life today? Is he the Son of God?

In this new worship and teaching series beginning Sunday, March 9th, we will explore the Jesus of scripture, the understandings of Christ through history, and the ways we relate to Jesus now in our own lives.

Gleaning

On Saturday, March 15th, we are going to join Christians Reaching Out to Society in gleaning a local field. Gleaning is when people go into a field and collect produce that has been missed or intentionally left. That produce is then distributed to agencies that feed the hungry. It is a practice that has been in place ever since Biblical times Mark your calendar for this opportunity to make a difference!

You can find information on C.R.O.S.’s gleaning ministry here.

Watch a piece from WPTV Channel 5 here.

And let us know if you will be joining us!
