Broken Plate

“Falling Plates” (A Relationship with God)

The SRC Web Team has just published a new page on our church website entitled “Our Salvation” that explains how to have a relationship with God. It is our desire and prayer that our church family will use this online tool as a way to “Pray, Invest & Invite” your friends to consider a relationship with Jesus Christ. Would you please click on “Our Salvation” to view the new page, and then share with friends who would benefit from seeing it? You will find a creative video, written explanation, and suggested next steps. Thank you!

Starting Point (Next Group Begins January 22)

Description:  A discussion oriented class for those who are skeptical or curious about Christ.  If you are connecting with God for the first time, or if you are reconnecting with God after being away from the church for a while, then Starting Point is for you.  Starting Point is a relaxed and informal gathering on Sunday mornings for you to connect with others who are at the same stage in their journey.  We invite you to join us as we watch video teaching, eat some snacks, and discuss questions about the Christian faith.
