Lent: 40 Days in the Wilderness

Wednesday, February 10 is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, 40 days (not counting Sundays) of penance and reflection. We invite you to fast that day and then break your fast at our Soup Supper at 5:30 pm. Proceeds will benefit City Connection's Prison Re-entry Program. Our Ash Wednesday worship service and imposition of the ashes will be at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary, which will also be open from noon - 1 pm for prayer and ashes.

Lenten Studies
During Lent, our Sunday sermon theme will be "What Christians Believe, and Why it Matters," a series on the core beliefs around which all Christians unite, as found in the Apostle's Creed. For twenty centuries, Christians have disagreed on everything from baptism to predestination, but in the midst of all this diversity there is unity at the core. The essentials are found in the great creeds, of statements of faith. The Apostle's Creed dates back to the second century and is accepted by every branch of the Christian family, so we'll use it as a guide to this important discussion.

On Wednesday evenings (6:15 pm, beginning February 17) we'll also offer ReLent, a spiritual renewal study led by Senior Pastor Luke Conway.  It's part of our Applied Light Wednesday Night series of meals (5:30 pm) and classes.

Joyful Worship

We offer four different worship services on Sunday. At 9 am, there's the "Blue Jean" service in Wesley Hall and the "Trinity" service in the sanctuary. Then at 11 am, there's "illumination" in Wesley Hall and our "Trinity" service in the Sanctuary.  Learn more....

Serving Others

We recently packed over 16,000 meals for the hungry on a single Sunday, and we host homeless women and children at our church through Family Promise. We helped found the Ozark Mission Project, a summer camp for teens who build wheelchair ramps and repair homes for our neighbors in need. And there's more, much more.

Family Programs

No matter what your age or stage of life, we offer faith development, friendship, and opportunities to expand the light. Learn more about our programs for children, youth, and adults, as well as our fee-based AfterCare Express program and our Mother's Day Out programs for busy parents.
