Starting April 12 Pastor Rudnick will begin a new sermon series: The Table. It’s the place we gather to nourish our bodies. It’s also the place we gather to nourish our souls. The table is the place where community happens. Healthy families gather around the table. Friends gather around the table. They gather to laugh, tells stories, reflect on life and generally connect with each other. The table has always played an important role in building community.
In this 5-week series, we will look at the centrality of the table in the Biblical narrative. We will examine the need for Christ-centered table gatherings and the role they play in building community within the church and connecting with those outside the church.
Week 1 Christ at the Table
Week 2 Invited to the Table
Week 3 The Messy Table
Week 4 Table Manners
Week 5 A Reserved Table

After the Christmas parade, come and experience the story of the Nativity like you have never heard it before! Through powerful music,
featuring the choir and Men of Faith Quartet, and compelling drama, journey with Joseph as he receives the news that he would be the father of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, through immaculate conception. Joseph is often the forgotten character of the Nativity story, but
experiences God’s revelation through powerful events. Join us on December 5 @ 7:35 p.m. and be propelled back in time to experience the greatest story ever told.
Come take part in a Mission Morning. For just a couple of hours, you can help out at the Gateway House of Peace by washing windows or by playing Bingo with the residents at Maplewood Manor.
