We're excited to offer five on-site worship venues starting on June 7, 2020. Each venue seats more than 50 people and will have some uniqueness, but all will include the same key elements with the exception of the family-focused Orange Venue. The four other venues will welcome any and all, including families with children and students. One venue, the Purple Venue, requires masks for added safety for those looking for that option. Services start promptly at 9:30 a.m. Arrive early or on time - the doors open at 9 a.m. For more information on how our on-site venues work, please read the In-Home and On-Site Worship Venues blog post

Child Baptism
Jul 07, 2020

What is baptism?
Baptism is an ordinance or special ceremony that Jesus gave His followers to do. In baptism, we go under the water (immersion) in the baptism tank or lake. It is a picture or symbol of our loving and believing in Jesus. By being baptized we are identifying with Jesus, His message, and His people.

Who should be baptized? 
Anyone who has trusted Jesus as their Savior and wants to live for Him should be baptized. They should be able to explain what baptism means and why they want to do it. They should be also be able to tell how they trusted in Jesus.

We encourage families to participate in the Basics Waypoint as part of the process of preparing for Believer's Baptism. Click HERE to learn more.

Our next baptism will be held, Sunday, April 19. For more information about baptism for children, contact the church office at (262) 367-1212, or click here - Child Baptism Booklet.

Children's Ministry: Week of July 6, 2020
Jul 07, 2020

Hi Families! 

As we continue studying Hebrews 11 this summer, we’ll look at the incredible faith of a woman named Rahab. 

Rahab. She isn’t the kind of person you’d expect to find in a “faithful hall of fame” list. She made a lot of wrong choices in her life, and she wasn’t Jewish. But there was one thing that Rahab did, and that changed her life! Rahab had faith in God and gave a “friendly welcome” (Hebrews 11:31 NLT) to two spies. 

The Bibles doesn’t say much about Rahab other than her profession. We do know that she had heard all about God’s people and how God had rescued them from Egypt, helped them cross the Red Sea on dry land, and completely destroyed their enemies. Rahab knew God is the supreme God of the heavens above and the earth below. (Joshua 2:11) She had faith! 

Because of her faith, Rahab was courageous and willing to put her life on the line to welcome the spies into her home, hide them, send the king’s men on a wild goose chase and help the spies escape. Why? She knew God had given the city to these people. 

Rahab also knew her only chance for rescue was from God. God was in control. God had done miraculous things for His people. God could rescue her and her family, too. 

And God did just that. Rahab left the red cord hanging from her window on the city wall, just as the spies instructed. When the Israelites came back and the walls fell, Rahab and her family were saved and became part of God’s family. She even became part of Jesus’ earthly family! (Matthew 1:5) 

Rahab’s faith changed her. Because of her faith, Rahab helped others—even total strangers! How about you? Has your faith in God changed you? Do you share your love for God by helping others? 

This week, I challenge you to look for ways you can share your faith and help others. Not to check off something on a To-Do list, but rather because you love Jesus and want to share His love with others through your actions. James 2:26 says “faith is dead without good works.” 

Let our actions tell the world that we love Jesus!

Our Lesson this Week: By Faith, Rahab: Having Faith Means We Should Help Others
Hebrews 11:30-31 / Joshua 2 & 6

Learning Packets (complete with materials listed above) can also be made available outside of the church office. Packets should be pre-ordered by 2pm on Thursday. They will be available for pick up Friday morning by 8am. Click HERE to order your packet now! 

Let’s be courageous, like Rahab, and share our faith by helping others!
