Whether you have never missed a Sunday of worship, or never set a foot in church before, you are welcome here! We are a community of people journeying through life and faith together. This is a place where you can ask questions, voice your doubts, and wrestle with complex issues. This is a place where you can shout with joy or weep in pain. This is a place where you can experience hope and healing. We hope you will come just as you are and join us as we seek to know God more fully and love more deeply.

4 week sermon series based on first: putting GOD first in living and giving, developed by author and Pastor Mike Slaughter of Ginghamsburg Church begins October 5.
How can we love God more intentionally and serve in His church? As part of the stewardship season we are offering several opportunities for you to explore this question in a 4-week small group study on Mike Slaughter's book "shiny gods: finding freedom from the things that distract us." Each week groups will watch a part of the video series and work through facilitated discussion. Please sign-up for a small group by EMAILING the church office.

FIRST WALK IS OCT. 5th at 3:00 PM ~ MEET AT THE FAMILY LIFE CENTER
We don’t know what life was like, exactly, for the people of biblical times, but we know this: they did A LOT of walking. In fact, walking is the backdrop for many well-known events of the Bible. The Israelites walked the desert Joseph and Mary walked to Bethlehem, and Jesus walked on water, just to name a few.
Our group, Walking 101, draws particular inspiration from Mary’s approximately 100 mile walk to see her cousin, Elizabeth, shortly after Mary was given the startling news that she was pregnant with the Son of God.* (For further reading, the website www.neverthirsty.org describes the meeting.) Like Mary, women seek guidance and support from other women they trust. The mission of Walking 101 is to provide a forum for women to seek guidance and support from other Christian women, while also getting in a little work out!
*So, why 101 and not 100? Well,"101" is the number given to beginner-level collegiate classes and we want walkers of all speeds to feel welcome! Contact Hollie Richards.
