Above All Else


JANUARY 15-FEBRUARY 20, 2022

In life, our hearts suffer hits and hurts. And, if we’re honest, we don’t love everything “flowing from it.” Discover practical help from God’s Word to identify your life’s sore spots and how God can redeem those spots and help you live a new kind of life. Join us for our 6-week message series Above All Else.

» PERSONAL STUDY
Sign up to receive an email every Sunday for 6 weeks starting January 16. This email will have a personal “One Your Own” experience based on the the Above All Else sermon series. You must sign up for these emails regardless if you are already on our "What's Happening" email list.

» SMALL GROUPS
We also will have new small groups based around this study. Small groups are a great way to process the material with others.

» OPTIONAL BOOK
There is an optional book entitled "Unhindered" that you can purchase at Mosaic Café or your favorite book seller. We have special bookmarks available at the Welcome Center or download a printable bookmark.

NLPC Baby Bottle Campaign


We value life. That's why our church is participating in New Life Pregnancy Center's Baby Bottle campaign. New Life Pregnancy Center offers compassionate support to women and men facing unplanned pregnancies. We handed out baby bottles the weekends of January 8/9 and 15/16 after each worship service. If you didn't get a chance to get a baby bottle, you can pick one up from the church office anytime during the week. Fill the bottle with change (donation) and return to the church by March 6. If you prefer to donate online, click below:
