Joy!

Christmas has swung into full gear and I have no doubt life is busy for all of you!  There are parties, present shopping, decorating, baking, and so much more happening every day!  It can be a challenge to stop and appreciate the joy of the season. We can get caught up in the worries and stress of it all, yet our call is to find joy. Our joy is not rooted in our shopping or list completing, rather it is rooted in the miracle of Christmas, the connection of community, and the love of Jesus.  This Sunday we talk about how we can find joy in this season and we watch the most joyful holiday movie, Elf!  We hope you will join us as we watch Elf and find joy.  See you Sunday at 11 am in the Basement!

Grace and Peace,

A Christmas Carol…

I know Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but it is the Christmas season!!!! I love Christmas, it is my favorite time of year because of the ways we can lean into the stories of our faith and other stories of joy and hope. In the church we also celebrate Advent. Advent is the season where we prepare for the coming of Jesus as we remember that Jesus is coming again. This year for Advent we are taking a look at a different loved Christmas movie each week. These movies tell us so much about hope, joy, and love!  This Sunday we dig into the hope we can find in the Christmas classic, The Muppet Christmas Carol!  We hope you will join us for the fun!   See you Sunday at 11 am in the Basement!

Grateful…

I am so grateful for our community. Not long ago we were still stuck in the pandemic and worshipping online only. Over the last few months, we have met new friends, moved locations, and built something exciting. I can honestly say I have seen God moving so powerfully over the last few months and for that I am thankful!  I am thankful for every person that volunteers, gives, helps, and prays because without all of you we would not be where we are today. I am especially grateful for the leadership Chris has brought to Ignite. This Sunday he has a message of thankfulness to share with us and I can’t wait to hear it!  I hope you will join us on Sunday to give thanks and worship God. See you Sunday at 11 am in the Basement!

A Time for Thanks…

I love this time of year. The weather has changed and it is chilly in the mornings and lovely in the afternoons. It is the perfect time to work outside, take a walk, and just enjoy God’s creation!  it is perfect that this is a season of thankfulness as we see so much good around us. I am thankful because this Sunday our very own Julie Harding is preaching!  She will bring us a message of thankfulness and hope!  This Sunday we also have our big hunger event and we plan to start packing meals at 8:30, join us and lend a helping hand!  Hope we will see you Sunday at 11 am in the Basement!

WWJD???

It was a blessed Sunday as we remembered those who we have lost in the last two years. Thank you to everyone that submitted names and helped make it happen. Today it is cool outside and it feels like fall!  As we move into fall I hope we can all find time to be thankful for what we have and time to appreciate the changes around us. 

This Sunday we will discuss what it means to live like Jesus. We all know the old trend of the WWJD bracelets, but the answer to WWJD is answered by what you believe about Jesus. So this Sunday let’s ask who was Jesus and what did Jesus stand for. These questions are the questions that should guide how we choose to live. It should be a blessed Sunday and we will gather for lunch after church. Hope we will see you Sunday at 11 am in the Basement!
