    Upcoming Services, Events & Opportunities to Serve

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24th AT 9:30 AM - REIGN OF CHRIST SUNDAY & THANKSGIVING SUNDAY.  The Message, "We Won't Be Afraid When Our World Falls Apart" will be based on Psalm 46:1-11.  Most of us live under the illusion that our world, that is, the world we have constructed for ourselves, is predictable, stable, and fixed.  Yet into every life there comes that time when our world falls apart, when things crumble and the mountains shake.  What then?  It's then that we reach out for God and find that God is indeed a refuge and strength, an ever present help particularly in our times of trouble when our world falls apart.  There will be a Children's Message.  The Chancel Choir will sing an anthem, "For the Fruit of All Creation" by Hal H. Hopson.  CHRIST REIGNS!  GIVE THANKS TO GOD, AND BLESS GOD'S NAME.  FOR GOD IS GOOD; GOD'S STEADFAST LOVE ENDURES FOREVER.  COME, CELEBRATE GOD LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE AS WE WORSHIP GOD TOGETHER.   ALL ARE WELCOME!
