Welcome to our family! We are a welcoming bunch of Jesus followers who don't take ourselves too seriously! We are the church all week long... but we try to get together at least once a week at our celebration service at 10:45. ) You can even check us out in advance by listening to our services, watching the video, or reading the bulletins. Just click the menus above.
Congratulations to Brent & Joanne H. on the birth of a son on Tuesday, March 24. Baby Bryce was born at 7 pounds, 2 ounces.
Join us on Tuesday (March 31) at 7:00 p.m. for approximately an hour to write cards of encouragement to (and pray for) people around the world who are imprisoned because of their Christian faith. Because of the painting project, we will meet at the home of Janet D. instead.
Don't miss the Good Friday Service on Friday, April 3 at the Comprehensive High School, starting at 10:00 a.m.
Sunday morning, April 5, there will be a Sunrise Service at Memorial Park at 7:00 a.m., followed by breakfast at The Center. Our Easter service will be at our church at 10:45 a.m.
Let's make April 12 Visitation Sunday. We'd like EVERYONE to invite someone from the church you don't know very well over to your home or to a restaurant for coffee or lunch. Perhaps you will make someone's day or discover a new friendship.
Bringing People Into The Caring Community Of Christ
March 26, 2015 - "Kindness" Edition
Kindness. Kind words, kind smiles, kind actions. Even the word "kindness" sounds kind, doesn't it?
I had an experience at 11:00 last night with a call from a NOT-so-kind stranger. In two or three short minutes, his unkindness disturbed my mood, made me feel a bit creeped out, and probably even raised my blood pressure a little. (He was calling about the Toyota Corolla we have for sale and was rude and demanding - so much that I ended up hanging up on him.)
Today, I'm happy to say I have had the opportunity to see several examples of kindness around me. Lynn Kruger picking me up for the Lent service (and Sandy Ryerson going early and saving seats for us). Phil Andrzejewski working hard at painting the fellowship hall. Pastor Joell spending his afternoon helping Phil. Lyle Krause delivering drinks from Tim Horton's for the guys working around the church. Elmer Elias dropping off a lovely Easter poem Kathy had written (so I could include it in the bulletin). Janet Dillabaugh sending an email that she and the ladies' group would be honored to plan the upcoming wedding showers. Ahhhhh, kindness. It warms the heart.
The Bible tells us to "put on compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience" (Colossians 3:12). Let's go out and do that!
