“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly want to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

  • Christmas Day Service

    Christmas Day Service

    (Rockford, IL) It's not new to have worship service on Sunday, but it IS unusual for us to have a worship service on Christmas Day. What better way, though, to thank God for sending us His son. We will worship together at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, December 25, in the Sanctuary to give our thanks to God for being with us in the flesh and now in the Spirit. (You also won't want to miss the choir and brass ensemble!)
