Worship Each Week & Daily Prayer
Advent Worship Series Begins Sunday, November 28, 8 am & 9:30 am
Rediscover the gift of Advent that comes without packages, ribbons, and bows.

We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. During this season of Advent, we explore the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! including, how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives? This Advent and Christmas season, look at a familiar classic through the lens of faith and see how Christ speaks to us through our culture.

We discuss chapters 6-13 (they are short chapters) this Sunday following 9:30 am service. The Sermon on the Mount, with its Beatitudes, and teachings of Jesus, reveal how disciples should engage in life together, among themselves, and with the world around them. The whole Sermon on the Mount is summed up in one word: love.

Give Regularly through five acts of generosity each month
From the very beginning of the movement, Disciples have founded institutions of higher learning, encouraging students in their intellectual pursuits. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is still committed to higher education.

On November 14 and 21, Disciples churches across the US and Canada will collect the Thanksgiving offering. As we continue to struggle with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, our higher education institutions are facing unprecedented challenges and need our support now, more than ever. Even as they work diligently to ensure safe and healthy learning environments, the financial realities faced by many of our schools are adding additional stress to students, faculty, and staff.

This November, please give generously to this year's Thanksgiving offering. your gifts make a world of difference as Disciples continue our legacy of supporting education and our institutions of higher learning.

And that’s why we have to have a movement to make that come into existence. … The fact is a nation’s budget tells where her heart is. ” – Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, senior pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church, Goldsboro, NC
