Christ Church Sunday Preview 8/25/19

Hi Friends, This Sunday we have the great privilege of learning from the ancient wisdom of Jesus about how we can experience joy.  Joy does not mean that everything is always happy.  No, there can be real sorrow.  But Jesus has something to say about joy that is always waiting for us no matter what ...

Do we really love like Jesus?

Why Church? Sign

Hi Friends, By now you’ve noticed that we have a new sign out front of our church building.  A few months ago, I was sitting out in our APR with the garage door open. I will do this sometimes if the weather is nice outside.  Sitting there gives me great opportunities to connect with neighbors ...
