Dinner & a Movie

Join us on Sun., Oct. 14th for this FREE event for our church and local community!  

The sit down dinner will be served starting at 4:30 followed by the showing of "I Can Only Imagine" at 5:30. Invite your friends and neighbors and plan to join us -- hope to see you there!
Free child care will be provided.

Based on the incredible true-life story that inspired the beloved, chart-topping song, I Can Only Imagine is a song that brings ultimate hope to so many - often in the midst of life's most challenging moments. The song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard, but those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.  The story is a gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness.

September Memory Verse:  A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son whom I dearly love; I find happiness in him.” (Matthew 3:17)

September 23: Jesus Creates a Family: The way Jesus called his disciples showed how different his ministry was going to be.  Normally, in Jewish history, a disciple would seek to follow a teacher.  Jesus seeking out of his own disciples was a breach of custom.  But Jesus was showing them a new way.  These special disciples traveled with and were taught by Jesus for the next three years.  They became closer than family.  After Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, most of these men continued to spread the good news of the kingdom.  Join us and learn about the higher calling in God’s kingdom.
