·techteam·Comments Off on Taking the Next Step
Last year we planned to begin The Taking Next Step Stewardship campaign and sermon series, God’s Extravagant Generosity, on Sunday, March 15, 2020, but the COVID pandemic required us to pivot at the last minute and postpone the campaign to Lent 2021. We are excited to now officially kick-off the campaign and series!
We invite you to join us Sundays, February 28 – March 21 for our Taking the Next Step campaign and sermon series, God’s Extravagant Generosity. In this series, we acknowledge that living generously is an essential part of following Christ. Giving is not about the church’s need for money but about our need to give to grow in our faith. Throughout this series, we will discover ways God uses our giving to change us, our community, and our world.
To help us all grow deeper in faith during this series, we will be sending out daily devotionals from Robert Schnase’s book Practicing Extravagant Generosity beginning on Monday, February 21. You may have received the hard copy of the book last year, but if you can’t find it, don’t worry, we will be sending the devotionals each morning to your email.

·techteam·Comments Off on The Longest Lent Study
When: Monday nights from February 22 – March 29 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Zoom
Throughout the history of Christianity, Lent has been a season of “No.” It has been a season in which followers of Jesus have said “no” to themselves, their desires, and their wants through fasting and spiritual practices. 2020 pushed much of the world into The Longest Lent, a full year of “no.” As we enter Lent 2021, it is a time to say “yes” by preparing ourselves for the new beginning Christ is bringing out of this year of “no.” In our Longest Lent Study, you will be invited to explore a series of faith-filled “Yeses.”
Saying “Yes” to Sabbath… after a year of lockdown
Saying “Yes” to Healing… and wholeness
Saying “Yes” to Praying…for our enemies
Saying “Yes” to reading the Bible…between the lines
Saying “Yes” to restoring…relationships with others
The Longest Lent study will be on Monday nights from February 22-March 29 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. on Zoom, led by Pastor Katie Newkirk. Sign up online or call the church office.

·techteam·Comments Off on Women’s Bible Study: “I’m Waiting God”
When: Mondays, January 11 – February 1 from 7 – 8 pm via Zoom
In this four-week Bible study, Barb Roose invites us to explore the stories of women in the Bible who had to wait on God— women such as Hannah, Ruth, Martha, and the unnamed woman who suffered for over a decade with a painful medical condition. If you’ve felt anxious, angry, discouraged or depressed because God isn’t giving you what you want, their stories will breathe fresh hope and practical next steps in your life.
Together we will discover that there is goodness and blessing to be found in times of waiting, including a closer relationship with God than we’ve ever dared to dream. Pastor Katie will facilitate this study. You can sign up online or call the church office. Each participant will need to purchase their own workbook. You can purchase the book from a local, Black-owned bookstore or on Amazon.
