Recommended  Book,”Becoming a Welcoming Church” by Thom Rainer

At our network meeting, Duane handed this book to all the pastors. I devoured it in about 90 minutes. I am making it mandatory reading (or at least I am trying to make mandatory) for the whole congregation.


The Good News involves the death and resurrection of Jesus. Come Celebrate with us the Risen Jesus. Death Defying!!

When you accept Christ, you defy death!

Connect Group on Wednesday evenings is adding a weekly prayer time rather than the once a month meeting. Prayer time will be from 6:00-6:45 each Wednesday evening before the study of the Gospels. Judy Hammond will be prayer leader for the month of March.

The Connection…

is not a place to just sit and watch. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey we have a place for you to belong and contribute. You were crafted with a purpose. Your passions, abilities, and experiences uniquely qualify you for a specific role in the kingdom of God. When you become a part of The Connection, we’ll help you find what that is. Imagine being part of a church where you can discover your calling, and be used by God to bless others. Together at The Connection, there is no limit to what God can do through us.

In Acts 1:8 as Jesus sent His disciples out to reach a dying world, He said, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Jesus Himself set up a model for multiplication that we follow still today. The Connection will always be a church that is focused on reproducing leaders, focusing on New Testament principles, planting churches nationally and internationally, and spreading the gospel.  Changing the world happens through multiplication! We expect to multiply by loving one person at a time. You are important to Jesus and to us.
