Upcoming Events

Sunday Service Info (Sept. 17th)
Join us this Sunday for the next message in Pastor Steve's new sermon series,  "Hero of the Universe:  No Lies, No Fake, Jesus".  How do you label Him? Who is He in your daily life? Many have made up things about Him that aren’t true, dismissed Him, or misused Him. And yet, He has not changed one bit. He has never progressively changed His positions. In Him are NO lies and there is NO fake.  He does not SPIN to tickle ears. He just IS Who He says He IS. He’s there when we call His name, and His name is JESUS, the undeniable Hero of the Universe.

Hero of the Universe - Series T-Shirts will be available this Sunday at the LAUNCHPAD.  Donations accepted. 
One Can Make a Difference (9/26):
  This Sunday we are collecting the following items for Astronaut High's Pantry: juice boxes, granola bars and packs of cheese and peanut butter crackers.

Volunteer Highlight:   Jack Simpson
If you see someone in an orange vest directing the long lines of cars in PACA’s after school pickup, that’s Jack Simpson! You’ll also find him serving as head usher in the 11am Sunday service and working in Park Avenue’s auto maintenance ministry.  Since he and his family moved here from Massachusetts more than a decade ago, he’s been an elder, coordinated the men’s servant ministry team, led a small group, and taught a Community Hour class.  Thank you, Jack, for your generous servant’s heart!
