Sing for Joy, Share Your Musical Gifts
The church music team is gearing up for another season of leading worship through music. We need additional members to join us in this pursuit for both the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir.

Please contact Choir Director, Jack Bertrand at j6bertrand@gmail.com with questions about either the Chancel Choir or Bell Choir.



Basecamps Transformation: Year-long Emphasis

An ancient Beduin curse says, "May you spend all your days in one place." The message is simple:

Don't camp-out where you can keep moving forward in faith!

But let us be honest sometimes it is hard to know if we are really moving forward in our faith. Over the years I've heard people say, "I've grown so much this last year" and I've heard others say, "I'm just not growing in this church." How do we know we're growing or not? What is our target, our goal as Christians? This is going to be our emphasis this year. We're going to give you some markers along the trail of your own spiritual journey to help you decide if you are growing in your faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ and we will give you the tools to help you keep moving forward in faith. We're calling it: Live Like Jesus.

Each week we will lift up a marker along the road that will tell you if you are moving toward your destination which is to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus who is becoming more and more like Jesus each day.

We are using the metaphor of a camping trip/hiking trail. So throughout the year we will be offering one day learning experiences we're calling BASECAMPS. These will give you tools to "gear up" for your journey of faith.

The first camp will be in February, so be looking for more details in the weeks to come. We'll provide donuts, coffee, and lunch. This will be a great opportunity to get any and all questions you have ever had about Christianity answered. You won't want to miss this.

I know we are used to hearing things super-hyped by advertisers and then being disappointed with the product. Let me just say to you that making disciples for the transformation of the world is what we are called to do as individuals and as a church. This year we are going to be developing you (if you get involved) unlike any other church in this country. Get ready to get involved and see your life changed forever! Transforming people who will transform our communities and world will be our focus in this next year. Plan now to be a part of it!

Blessings,
Ron
