Join us for fun, fellowship, and CHOCOLATE!!
All you have to do is bring something that contains chocolate and is able to be made into small, bite size pieces so everyone can sample your concoction. Be as original or creative as you want. You can sign up your goodie on the bulletin board in church or tell Raquel or Leah and they can sign you up. And please join us anyway even if you don’t bring anything! We will have games for all ages!
Living the Sweet Life
Living the Sweet Life is a celebration of the unparalleled sweetness of the Gospel. In God’s Word, we have a treat for any time of day, any diet, any occasion: the Gospel. In Psalm 119:103, the psalmist writes, “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” God’s
unfailing love for us is the sweet extravagance that doesn’t have to wait for a special occasion.
