Worship Guide 10.6.19
We speak and sing often of God's great mercy - but what does that look like in real life, who is it for, and how do we participate? That's what we'll ponder together this Sunday as we come to Matthew 9:35-10:15. We'll also be celebrating Child Dedications during both services. Join us at 9:00a or 11:00a.

To help you prepare for our weekly gatherings, we've put together this weekly playlist containing the songs we'll be singing together this coming Sunday. Take a listen to prime your heart and mind to worship.
We've also put together a brand new playlist for autumn with songs to sing as we settle back into rhythms we may have set aside for the summer. We pray these songs are a blessing to you!
We have lots going on this summer and we'd love to have you join us! Click here to view our calendar and to register for upcoming events!

INTRODUCTION TO THE SACRAMENTS CLASS | SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13
Baptism and The Lord’s Supper are essential elements of the life of a disciple, but these disciplines are often steeped in mystery. It’s our hope that this class will lift the veil from the sacraments and their beauty.
This class is available to all over the age of 12. PARENTS, we strongly encourage you to register your 12+ child(ren) to give them an understanding of why we observe both baptism and communion. This class is mandatory to anyone who wishes to be baptized before the age of 18.
If you’re interested in learning more about the sacraments, please join us on Sunday, October 13 from 5:00 - 6:30pm. We will share a meal together, so please RSVP HERE by Sunday, October 6.
COMMUNITY SPAGHETTI DINNER | MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18
Save the date and spread the word! This all-church event is our attempt to meet a physical need of our neighbors by providing a warm meal, and a relational need by inviting them into our church and to Jesus himself. We'll need your help pulling it off! Opportunities to serve include set-up and tear-down, preparing food in advance, table discussion leaders, kids craft and game planners facilitators, and helping to guide the vision and execution of the event. Sign-up at the Connect Table or email firstname.lastname@example.org. More details to come!
WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER
Each Wednesday morning, we'll be gathering at 6:00am for a brief (30 minute) time of prayer. Come with your coffee and join us as we enjoy the presence of God together.
