                                          We are a community of followers of Jesus Christ
                                       committed to help connect people to God and others,
                                       encouraging them to live a life of faith and love that brings hope to
                                       those around them. We welcome people from all walks of life, and
                                       we believe life is not meant to be lived on our own. So regardless of
                                       where you are on your spiritual journey we hope you will join us.

                               Christmas Hope
Believe it or not, Christmas is around the corner, and                   we are making plans for the
3rd annual Christmas Hope Benefit Concert. Mark                               your calendar now for
Saturday, December 18th, to enjoy a variety of family fun                      and entertainment to
celebrate Christ’s birth. With two musical stages for small                    and large groups, an
art gallery, kids’ crafts and café, there is something for you                    at this event. And
perhaps the best thing of all is that we get to support a                                   wonderful
local organization called “Take the Next Step.” Take the                               Next Step is a
community resource center that serves at-risk families and                              individuals by
providing mentoring, education, referrals and resources.                                  At a time in
our economy when many people are losing jobs and                                         homes, Take
the Next Step is a ministry that can really use the                                             added
exposure and donations. Suggested donations of $8                                          per person
($25 per family max) will be taken at the door and go                                          right to
Take the Next Step. So join with as we prepare for                                          Christmas
Hope! If you would like to serve in decorating                                             or publicity
