“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.

  • 'Waffles & Worship' is Tantalizing & Terrific!

    Sunday, February 4, 2018 8:00 AM

    Just smell those hot waffles with syrup dripping down the sides as we listen to the Word of God. There's nothing better than a delicious meal for the body and a fulfilling 'meal' for the soul. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Come worship and fellowship with us in the Church Dining Room on the first Sunday of the month. We will take an offering during worship and a free-will donation for the breakfast - give as you are able. Communion, a holy meal, will be served during worship.

  • God Is Calling You

    God Is Calling You

    (Rockford, IL) Your phone rings and you check to see who is calling. Everything stops as you read on the screen that the caller is 'God'. Questions run through your head. Why is God calling me? Is this really God? What could God possible want with me? Join us in worship at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning beginning January 14th as we find out that, yes, God is calling YOU. How will you respond? Will you answer? Will you hang up? Will you listen? Will you put your phone on speaker? Will you transfer the call? Take a moment to ponder how YOU will handle God's call.
