​​"We exist to

​connect people to

Jesus Christ!"


       So many people, when faced with a challenge or question, will automatically answer, "Why?" But God challenges us to instead answer, "Why NOT?" Our newest sermon series will focus squarely on that question- Why Not? Each week will ask a different "why not" question, starting at the most basic human level and growing outward to a new, and more positive, worldview. The weeks of the sermon look like this:
Sunday, August 6, 2017- Why Not Face Your Fears? (John 14:23-29) Don't let fear or insecurity stop you. Believe in yourself. Trust in God. (Isaiah 41:8-10, 2Timothy 1:580)

Sunday, August 13, 2017- Why Not Deepen Your Faith? (Luke 23:32-43) Life is full of both happiness and tears; be strong and have faith. (Proverbs 3:3-6, Philemon 1:4-7)
Sunday, August 20, 2017- Why Not Make a Greater Commitment? (John 11:38-44) Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work. (Psalm 37:3-6, Colossians 3:23-24)
Sunday, August 27, 2017- Why Not Change the World? (Luke 21:1-4) Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. (Isaiah 66:1-2, Matthew 28:16-20)
     You all stepped up in MAJOR ways to invite people to that last sermon series. We have had record-breaking Summer worship attendance so far. Keep it up. Invite people, especially those who are seeking, to JOIN YOU in worship. Why? Because our goal, as always, is to connect people to Jesus Christ!
