Be In The Know!!!

Revelation 21:1 – “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” The things of this world are passing away. We are waiting for a new heaven and a new earth, that has been promised to us in Christ. This knowledge is foundational for our stewardship of what God has put into our hands. What is truly important? What is worthy of our support? How has God called us to use “unrighteous mammon” for the good of our neighbor, and God's kingdom?

At the request of some of our families with babies and toddlers, the Elders have decided to try Reserving The Back Pew, On Each Side, For Families With Young Children, so that they will be able to move easily back and forth from their pew to the Bathrooms, and Cry Room, when that is needed. It is hoped that this will encourage these families to worship with us more regularly and consistently
