Pastor Kip continues his new sermon series at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. Tomorrow, he’ll focus on a well-known, Old Testament figure: Moses. Learn how to see, recognize and honor the holy ground on which we stand—just as Moses did in the book of Exodus.


The Bridge

Pastor Robert begins a new series tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. In the midst of our ‘always-connected’ digital world, there’s a vital need for us to cultivate spiritual practices of solitude and silence. Learn to rest through four simple practices.

Mission of the Month: Trunk-or-Treat

One of our largest outreach efforts of the year is coming up on Sunday, Oct. 27. Help us show radical hospitality to our neighbors!

  1. Create a trunk. Pick a theme and hand out candy from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. Everyone that does a trunk is automatically entered in a drawing for two Iron Bowl tickets!

  2. Serve as a greeter, set-up and break-down helper, parking team, or carnival ride attendant to make this event a success. We’re expecting 2,000 people!

  3. Candy is the easiest way to help and we’ve got a donation box at the children’s ministry desk down the hall.

  4. Spread the word! We’ve got five B’ham food trucks coming, free candy and popcorn, carnival rides, a cake walk, and music. Plus, our special needs families can enjoy exclusive trunk or treat access from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m.
