Be Thankful!

This time of year we are remembering to be thankful. One very practical way to do this is to be generous with what we have been given. We invite you to give a frozen turkey, any fixings, or a donation to help our neighbors celebrate. Contact Eleanor Renshaw:, JoAnn Freeman:, or Lisa Shaw: for more info!

Baby Shower for Britney & Kate!

Please join us in celebrating and blessing the new additions to the Miller and the Daniels families! Bring a potluck item to share. The focus will be on praying for these mommies and families, but if you would like to bring a gift please bring diapers or a small gift card.



SUNDAY, November 10, is our monthly Missions Meeting. If you are interested in learning more about our missionaries or how the missions team works, please join the meeting during the 9am service on the 2nd floor of the youth building. Contact Eleanor for more information.

Hi Everyone,

This week we’ll talking about understanding God’s Heart, and our text will be Luke 15:1-32.  Jesus tells three stories in our passage.  The first is about a shepherd who leaves 99 sheep in order to recover the one that is lost.  The second story is about a woman who turns her house upside down searching for a lost silver coin.  And finally, the last story is the infamous Prodigal Son story which you undoubtedly have heard before.

We’ll be pulling out new insights and fresh perspectives from these verses, not simply repeating principles you’ve heard many times in the past.

I look forward to seeing you at either our 9 am or 10:30 am service.  And, know that this is a great day to invite a friend!

This week, we get to study one of my very favorite things about God: he seeks after us even when we are far from him and he never gives up on us even when we are unfaithful. If that doesn’t cause our hearts to overflow in worship, I don’t know what would! I look forward to worshiping our incredible God with you this weekend!

High School / Middle School

We have a tremendous opportunity this Saturday to serve at Foodshare! Students will be taking the lead in serving and I am so excited for the conversations and experiences to come. We will be meeting at CBC at 9:30 am to set up and should be done around 12:00 pm. I hope all can make it!

For our high schoolers, we are headed to the Escape Rooms at the Harbor on Saturday, 11/16, for a fun night of mystery and solving puzzles! Price is $35. We’ll be meeting at the harbor from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Please let me know soon if your student can attend, as we do have to buy tickets in advance and need exact numbers.

Truth. What is it? Who has it? How can we be sure? These are the questions of our day. Everyone claims to have truth, but that simply can’t be true. Join us for this discussion series as we talk through worldviews such as Atheism, Mormonism, and Cults.

Sunday 12/1/19 6p

The first Sunday of each month, at 6 pm, we host our monthly healing service called Restore in our church sanctuary. Please help us get the word out to friends and family – even strangers, those who you feel might be in need of this vital ministry!

It has been my overwhelming experience that healing is not about praying the right words, or finding the right person to lay hands on us, but rather about persistence in prayer. Time-and-time-again I have seen God work miracles as His people persist in prayer, petitioning Him to unleash His divine power against evil, injustice and the broken things of this life!

Won’t you come join us as we persist together as a family, as a body of believers, who are convinced that God is able!

I’m confident that this will quite possibly be the most significant and powerful hour that you will engage in all week long!
