Current Sermon / Series
“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.”
“Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”
“After Jesus had dismissed the crowds, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was still there alone.”
“Jesus withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place.”
12 During that time, Jesus went out to the mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night long. 13 At daybreak, he called together his disciples. He chose twelve of them whom he called apostles.
17 Jesus came down from the mountain with them and stood on a large area of level ground. A great company of his disciples and a huge crowd of people from all around Judea and Jerusalem and the area around Tyre and Sidon joined him there. 18 They came to hear him and to be healed from their diseases, and those bothered by unclean spirits were healed … Then he spoke:
27 I say to you who are willing to hear: Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. 28 Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on the cheek, offer the other one as well. If someone takes your coat, don’t withhold your shirt either. 30 Give to everyone who asks and don’t demand your things back from those who take them. 31 Treat people in the same way that you want them to treat you.

Volunteer Appreciation Luau (Tropical Party!)
Mark your calendars! On Saturday, September 28th, we will be hosting a tropical themed Volunteer Appreciation Night at Shane and Tomra Bazer’s house. The goal is to celebrate and spoil all of our many volunteers and spend a night simply relaxing, eating, and enjoying one another’s company.
But if you’re thinking, “Wait, I’m not signed up to volunteer currently.” Never fear. All you have to do to qualify for the Volunteer Appreciation Luau is be signed up to serve on a team, and on September 15th and 22nd, we’ll have information and opportunities to sign up after church. (That’s called leverage, people!)
Be sure to put the date on your calendar, and get ready for some fun and good food!
