Reality Kids Christmas Play Everyone is invited to enjoy a performance of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” starring our own Reality kids on Sunday, December 16th.

Advent Guides In order to help you, your family and your Gospel Community fully engage the themes of this season, we have prepared an Advent Guide. Each week connects to Sunday's sermon and highlights a key theme of the season. For each day, there is a Scripture reading followed by with a reflection question, a prayer, or a Christmas carol to sing together. The guide is meant to serve you and provide you with readings and suggestions to help turn a typically hectic season into a space for prayer and reflection. Use it as it best serves you. You can pick up a printed copy at the Connect Board or download the PDF from Realm HERE.

Madison Giving Tree As a church that rents out Madison Elementary School, we want to be much more than just tenants. We want to be partners that seek the wellbeing and common thriving of their staff, students, and community. Please consider stopping by the “Giving Tree” posted on the wall by the front entrance top claim a specific school supply for one of Madison’s teachers or staff. Simply pick up an item description, purchase it, and return it to the school the following Sunday with the label attached. Thanks for being “good news” to Madison!
