WORSHIP

Join us for weekend worship for our sermon series: Jesus. We’ll be taking a look at the identity of Jesus, how those he impacted the people around him, and how he continues to influence us today. You don’t want to miss this special series in the weeks leading up to Easter.

TAKE A NEXT STEP

During Lent, we’ll take a Next Step with our Daily Bible Reading Plan: Jesus in 40. This special selection of readings will lead into the sermon topic each weekend. During Jesus in 40 you’ll receive an exclusive video from Stephen in your inbox each week, plus you’ll get a daily email with the scripture lesson and discussion questions. We’re excited to experience Jesus through this reading plan as we prepare to celebrate Easter together.

HOPE INITIATIVE KITCHEN VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

We are looking for 4 volunteers to join the Hope Initiative team each Tuesday!  2 volunteers needed to serve from 3:30-4pm for meal prep and set up and 2 volunteers from 5-7pm each Tuesday to serve and help clean up.  Dinner is provided and we have a lot of fun!

HOPE CONNECTION VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Hope Connection is our outreach ministry to low-income families that seeks to build relationships that lead to financial stability and overall well-being. By first building a relationship, we are able to better understand each individual’s situation and focus on creating lasting change in their quality of life. Volunteers meet with program participants to assist in navigating through challenges and begin a journey towards stronger financial and spiritual well-being. If you’re interested in learning more about this important serving opportunity, please fill out the form below, and select “Outreach” as your area of interest. 

A LETTER FROM STEPHEN

 Dear Cokesbury,

A few weeks ago, I invited you to join me in praying for the called General Conference that would take place in St. Louis. The sole focus of this gathering was to deal with issues relating to human sexuality–a subject our denomination has been wrestling with every 4 years since 1972.

COKESBURY KIDS BIBLE EXPERIENCE

If your 3rd or 4th grader has received a Bible as a gift from someone special, or if they would like to receive a gift Bible from their Cokesbury family, we hope you’ll join us for our Bible Experience on Sunday, March 31 at 5 pm on the North Campus! We’ll ignite a love for God’s word in the hearts of our children as we play games and explore the Bible in a hands-on way.
