Hi Friends,

We’ve got another great Sunday planned for this week!  We are going to be continuing in our series called, “Resolved to Grow:  6 things that will change your 2020.”  This week we are going to be looking at growing in prayer.  I am super excited about this topic.  I can’t even begin to imagine what God will do if we all committed to growing in prayer this year.  Also, I’m excited because Pastor Steve Huber is coming in to preach.  If you don’t know who Steve is, he is kinda the Yoda of church planting in Philadelphia (I’m a Star Wars geek, what can I say).  Steve started Liberti church 17 years ago and that church has since gone on to plant 10 other churches in the Philadelphia area that make up the Liberti Church network.  This is the network that we partner with for Easter Outreach where we are part of giving out thousands of meals across the city.  Steve is a really humble, genuine and sincere man who is passionate about Jesus.  I’ve been very blessed through my friendship with him and I know that you are going to love hearing from him.
So this is definitely not a Sunday you’ll want to miss!  And it would be a great time to invite a neighbor, since we are doing our Second Sunday lunch after church.
See you on the best day of the week!
Pastor Jeff

Call to Worship 10am

Open to me the gates of righteousness, that I may enter through them and give thanks to the LORD. This is the gate of the LORD; the righteous shall enter through it. I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Save us, we pray, O LORD! O LORD, we pray, give us success!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD. (Psa 118:19-26 ESV)

Celebrating God in Song (Playlist)




Dismiss Children to Christ Church Kids


Sunday Morning Equip Class

There are questions that we can have, or that can be asked of us, that can set our mind into all kinds of disarray.  Questions like, how could a loving God allow so much suffering, or isn’t Christianity homophobic and hasn’t science disproven Christianity?  But what if these hard questions for the Christian faith were all actually sign posts leading the way into a deeper experience of faith? Come out to this class as we seek to explore hard questions and see how they lead us to Christ. The class will run from 8:45am-9:30am on Sunday mornings and child care will be provided.  You can sign up at bit.ly/ccspequip

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Eph 3:20-21 ESV)
