The Bride of Christ

Pastor Kody Hope

Anyone who has ever been to a wedding can tell you just how important the bride is to the wedding day.  Brides are a symbol of love and affection both given and received.  Throughout the whole of Scripture we see the body of Christ, his people, referred to as his bride.  What would it look like if the Church began to truly see itself and live as Christ's beloved?  Join us this week as we dive into the identify bestowed upon us.

Pastor Appreciation Month

During the month of October, we will be celebrating Pastor Appreciation month.  Board Stewards asked staff members to create the following Amazon wishlists so we can show them our support by purchasing items meaningful and unique to them.  Please feel free to send a gift acknowledging their dedication to our church family.  These gifts can be done anonymously if you wish.  You will also find baskets located in the foyer for each staff member if you wish to leave a note or token of appreciation.
Feel free to contact board stewards: Liesl Haupert, Steve Kimmel, Chris Rakoczy, or Laura Zahm if you have questions.
