Make the move to the 1st service....from the 2nd!

November 12th - December 31st, 2017

We are officially looking for 10 In Focus families to move from the 2nd service to the 1st service beginning November 12. It doesn't mean there can't be more, but we want 10 to commit here and now to make the move!

HERE'S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Q&A

Why do we need 10 families to do this?

Because the 2nd service is totally slammed full in both the main auditorium with the adults and with the children in Kid Focus. It's a great problem to have, and we want to make room for more guests to come and experience God's love. (AND yet another reason why our Greater Building Campaign is necessary!)

What constitutes a family?

A single person or group of friends are welcome to make the move too, but here specifically, we are looking for 10 families of a parent(s) with at least one child.

How will this affect my "serve one, attend one"?

It will have no affect really. You will simply attend the first service and serve the second service. If you are not currently "serving one and attending one", then please click HERE and find a place to serve during the second service. Your help is needed and much appreciated!

What will my children do while I serve the 2nd service?

For children age 4 through 5th grade, they will attend a portion of the Kid Focus service and then have a "clubhouse" time of hangout, games, and a snack. Younger children will remain in their class for another time of teaching and playing with their friends.

So, is it you and your family??? Thank you for your consideration, now make the move!

Only one parent needs to register here to represent the family. You will be prompted during registration to list the names and ages of your children.

The arena main design

The Arena 2017 - Men's Event

December 1st, 2017

The Arena is an opportunity for men to gather together in a relaxed setting to have fun, build relationships, and worship together. All events are held on Friday nights.

We believe that all men have ‘fight’ in their hearts. It’s how we were made. The question is, what are we fighting for? A mercenary fights for his own benefit, but a warrior fights for a cause bigger than himself. We are called, as Christians, to be warriors for the sake of the Gospel.

Our hope is that while at The Arena, you will experience the depth of God’s love for you, as well as sense the urgency of the battle at hand for our own lives, our families, and our fellow brothers.

1 Timothy 6:11-12 says, "But you, O man of God, flee from these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession before many witnesses.”

The Arena is open to all men, including high school juniors and seniors. Registration not required. Mark your calendar now! Doors open at 6:30pm.

JOIN US for the 2017 Kid Focus Christmas Musical!

December 13th, 2017

Come support the KidFocus cast and crew in their performance of The King and Me!

Welcome to the grand opening of Bethlehem's first-century theme park Adventure--Royal World! Bethlehem is the birthplace of Israel's great King David. This "favorite son" put them on the map, but it has been 1,000 years since David's reign, and sleepy Bethlehem is hardly the next big tourist attraction. But, the ambitious Hannah believes that "The City of David" is the perfect place to bring fun and festivities built around this great king, and the census, back to their ancestral home. However, failing to pass the safety inspections for proposed "thrill rides" like The Runaway Caravan ("we put you on a wild camel, then smack it with a stick!") may bring those plans to a halt. Then comes news of a dramatic angel announcement right outside of Bethlehem: "today--in the city of David, a Savior has been born . . . and he will reign on David's throne forever!"

Wednesday, December 13 at 7:00 pm. Everyone is welcome!
