Who is God?
Exploring what God is like.

Throughout life we ask many questions. Some of them come from the innocence and imagination of a child: “Why is the sky blue?” As we get older they become deeper and more existential: “What is the meaning of life? What is my purpose here on earth?” But at the deepest level, the most important two questions we will ever ask in our lives are “Who is God?” and “What is He like?” Everyone must confront these questions. How we answer them have huge implications for how we live life.

As we explore these questions, they naturally lead to a myriad of others: “Is God good? Is He in control? Does He truly love all people? Will He forgive me for what I have done? Is He fair? And who is this Jesus?” Our hope, over the next six weeks, is to explore these questions and discover the God of the Bible in a deep, rich way. Whether you are a skeptic or a strong believer, we invite you to ask this question with us: Who is God?

HisKids Music & Drama Presents
All About That Baby

Performances: Saturday, December 3 at 2pm and 4pm

Angels and shepherds and…talking sheep?

Oh, my! People everywhere are making the journey to the place of their births, in compliance with Caesar’s decree that everyone should register for the census. This results in the little town of Bethlehem overflowing with people. Nathaniel, a lovable but scatter-brained, late-for-work shepherd, bumps into two of those travelers, Joanna and Simone, as he rushes to take his shift at watching the flock. The other shepherds (his sisters Miriam and Abigail), along with Judah, are waiting for Nathaniel — late once again—to arrive. Thus begins a story that is All About That Baby, with some shepherds, angels, “out-of-towners”… and singing, talking sheep to guide us along the way!

Helpers are also needed to make the show a success so Project 56’ers are encouraged to get involved in the fun! Refreshments will be served before and after the show in Fellowship Hall. A suggested donation of $10 will go toward funding the teen’s summer mission trip to Denver. 

Project 56 is a program for tweens in grades 5 & 6 that meets the first Wednesday of each month from 7-8 PM in the Gym. Led by our teen student leaders, Project 56 seeks to help children make the transition from elementary to middle school, while strengthening their faith in Jesus as they enjoy friendship-building, fun activities, and Christ-centered object lessons.
