This Sunday, we will recognize “Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.” Three local ministries that protect the unborn and minister to the women and men in our community will share a brief update and have tables in the Narthex: Chester County Connect Care, Healing Hearts, and Genesis Women’s Clinic. This day is set aside in our nation to pray for and remember the lives of the unborn children. We are grateful for the overturning of Roe v. Wade, however, there is still a battle for the unborn in our nation, state, and local community. As followers of Christ, let us boldly proclaim the Biblical truth that life begins at conception. “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13-14a.
Baby Bottle Drive
You can impact our community through the Baby Bottle Drive with Chester County Connect Care. Please fill your bottle with change, currency, or a check written to Chester County Connect Care and return by February 26, 2023. You can pickup a bottle at the table in the Narthex.
Community Connection Groups are an active attempt to make our big church feel a little smaller. We are preparing to help you—the church body—get plugged into a Community Connection Group. Groups can gather for a potluck or dessert night, meet at a local coffee shop, take a walk in the park, or have a game night together. Before we can get started forming groups, we need POINT PEOPLE! Being a Point Person simply means that you will be the facilitator and the primary communicator of an assigned Community Connection Group. Groups will be forming soon!
If you are interested in being a Point Person signup here.

From the day you were born, you have been on a quest. You have been searching for something more, because deep down inside, you have a sense that life must have some kind of meaning and purpose beyond mere existence. Maybe you’ve even wondered if you’re the only person who feels this way.
What to expect
Our Sunday morning services are casual and allow you to come as you are. The first portion of each service is set aside in a time of congregational praise and worship. Children ages 2 and above join their parents for the music portion of the service and then are dismissed to be checked into their age-appropriate classes. After some brief announcements, our services continue with verse-by-verse teaching from Pastor Chris.
