Verse of the Day

[Thanksgiving] I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— — 1 Corinthians 1:4-5 (NIV)

Give Thanks

“O Heavenly Father:
We thank you for food and remember the hungry.
We thank you for health and remember the sick.
We thank you for friends and remember the friendless.
We thank you for freedom and remember the enslaved.
May these remembrances stir us to service.
That your gifts to us may be used for others. Amen.”

I Thank Thee
O Thou whose bounty fills my cup,
With every blessing meet!
I give Thee thanks for every drop—
The bitter and the sweet.

I praise Thee for the desert road,
And for the riverside;
For all Thy goodness hath bestowed,
And all Thy grace denied.

I thank Thee for both smile and frown,
And for the gain and loss;
I praise Thee for the future crown
And for the present cross.

I thank Thee for both wings of love
Which stirred my worldly nest;
And for the stormy clouds which drove
Me, trembling, to Thy breast.

I bless Thee for the glad increase,
And for the waning joy;
And for this strange, this settled peace
Which nothing can destroy.

Jane Crewdson (1860)

How to find us

COTW-Map

You can see our Church from the road but have to make a few turns to find us. When Lee Highway (Route 29) was widened we lost the front of our property and got a new street for entry. From Linton Hall road take Whitney, then right onto Old Linton Hall, left onto Charis Avenue, and right onto Logos. You will be able to park at the back of the building and walk around to the front door.

Welcome to Children’s Ministry at our Church! We are here to support families as you “train up your children in the way they should go”.

Lauren Coleman has been leading our Children’s ministry for 2 years. She has two small children and a background in Psychology and Education. Welcome Lauren

Carol singing: will take place after worship on December 10th, practice singing after worship and then to a local nursing home and celebrate with hot chocolate afterwards.

On Sundays, our 10:30 service has both Sunday School and nursery. Nursery is for ages 0-3 and parents may drop off children for the whole service or just for part of it. Quite a few parents enjoy letting their babies and toddlers experience worship at the beginning and communion at the end, but the choice is yours. Children in Pre-K through grade 5 leave service with their Sunday School teachers and return after the sermon and Peace. Currently, we are learning about the Gospels in our Discipleship, Jr. curriculum and the kids are having a blast as the learn Scripture. Don’t forget to join us after service so we can meet you and your kids!

From our children’s ministry….If your kids are growing out of some of their toys, we’d gladly take certain items for our nursery. We are in need of gently used play kitchen supplies and food, wooden puzzles, large cars and trucks, batteries for some of our light-up toys, games for the bigger kids, and books.”

Operation Christmas Child a big success over 100 boxes delivered.
