Church Calendar - Worship Services 2018-2019
This year our worship services will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Sunday School will begin at 9 a.m.
The Christian Church Calendar helps us to remember and celebrate the saving acts of God accomplished in Jesus Christ: from the incarnation to the cross, the resurrection, the ascension, and finally to the gift of the Holy Spirit and the establishment of the Church at Pentecost. Year after year we are invited to order our lives around these mighty acts of God found in Christ, and all the while we await the return of Christ when the creation will be perfectly restored in the reign of Christ.
