Becoming Like Christ and Making Him Known

Join us for worship Sunday at 10:00 a.m. in person and live-streamed!

Christian Book Club.

The Christian Book Club will read Born Again by Chuck Colson and will meet Friday, Sept. 24, online at 6:30pm (date tentative at this writing). In 1974 Charles W. Colson, former special counsel to President Richard Nixon, pleaded guilty to Watergate-related offenses and, after a tumultuous investigation, served seven months in prison. In his search for meaning and purpose in the face of the Watergate scandal, Colson penned Born Again.In 1976 Colson founded Prison Fellowship, which  has since become the world’s largest outreach to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families. In 1991 he launched BreakPoint, a daily radio feature bringing Christian thinking to bear on current issues, which aired on more than 1,000 stations nationwide. He passed away in 2012. From a review on Christianbook.com: “What an amazing journey from being on the wrong side of Watergate to being fully surrendered to God and founding Prison Fellowship ministries, along with his wife, which is now worldwide. I believe Colson’s trailblazing efforts have made it possible for many of God’s servants to reach many inmates for Christ. I loaned this book to a friend on Sunday. By Wednesday he had finished it and asked permission to pass it on to his granddaughter. It is truly a work that every Christian should read, especially if you lived through the Watergate years,  as I did.”

Friendly Service is Back!

The Friendly Service will meet Monday, Sept. 13, from 9am to noon in Fellowship Hall.  Masks and social distancing will be required. Martha Osborn is leading the group, which was an institution in our church for many years. We will make such things as lap quilts, crocheted hats and mittens, bed bags and patient totes, and baby items for:  the VA Hospital in West Haven, Hopeline Pregnancy Resource Center in Danbury, the New Milford Homeless, the Praxair Cancer Center at New Milford Hospital, and Matthew’s Hearts of Hope.  Interested? No skills needed. Please bring your own sewing machine, but Martha does have sewing machines she can bring. If you like to crochet or wish to learn, she is willing to teach. Please email Deb Thorp at debbiethorp84@gmail.com or Aimée Suhie at suhieaimee@gmail.com to let us know how many will attend.

Our Core Values :

Our core values guide our Ministries, and flow from our Church Mission to Become Like Christ and Make Him Known. Come join us in sharing the good news!

Since Jesus honored Scripture as God’s WordWe Value the Bible, given by God so we can know the truth and live transformed lives. Our goal is to teach His Word as the foundation of all we do and to align our thoughts and actions with the Bible.

Heeding Christ’s call to worship the FatherWe Value Worship as the cornerstone of our faith. We value prayer, Sunday worship, and daily personal worship, as essential to becoming like Christ.

Believing the Promise that one day All Nations will worship Christ, We Value Missions. We believe in the importance of spreading the Good News. We obey God’s call to show the beauty of His grace to non-believers, so we support many different world and local missions.

Following Jesus who served and gave sacrificiallyWe Value Generosity and Service. All we possess and all that we are is a gift from our loving God. Our goal is generous giving – whether finances, skills, service or time.

Because Christ commanded us to love one anotherWe Value Fellowship. Fellowship with God is the basis of fellowship with one another as a church family, where our desire is all people feel welcomed, loved, and accepted.
