Current Series “Experiencing God.” Many people ask, “How do you experience God?” The simple answer to this question is “you embrace Jesus and His message and then God provides the experience.” Phrased differently, open up the door to your heart and ask God to come in so you can experience Him personally and intimately.
Doesn’t sound complicated does it. But we all know the challenge. Easier said than done.
This sermon series “Experiencing God” teaches us how to develop an obedient love relationship with God. God is already at work with us. We just need to DISCOVER what that means for us and when we truly realize it, we UNITE with God and then ENGAGE with him on this journey.
OUTDOOR WORSHIP / CHURCH PICNIC – November 4th, we will meet at Copper Sky under a pavillion for worship and a picnic. More details to come!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD OUTREACH: One way we can share Jesus’s love with children around the world is by filling Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, and other items. This year Discover will focus on boys and girls, ages 2-4. Our goal is to provide 30 boxes! Collection boxes ARE AVAILABLE at the resource table at church so start shopping! Please note there are several items on the list that will not be allowed due to shipping requirements. If you would prefer to donate money toward this mission project, please place in offering envelope on your table and mark it “Operation Christmas.”

Bob continues on his long journey of recovery and both he and Betty would love to see you! Bob and Betty are so grateful and wish to thank all of you for your visits and kindness shown to them!
NEEDED: PRAYER WARRIORS – God says in His Word that we should pray for one another. One way to do this is through our prayer chain. Each week prayer requests are submitted for needs of our brothers and sisters at Discover, for friends and family we know, and for local and worldwide needs. Not only is this ministry for those who need prayers but those who pray each week grow also as they see answers to prayer and how God works in our lives. More prayer warriors are needed! Please inquire at the Resource table or talk to Pastor Chuck or Connie.
DISCOVER is a developing church with many opportunities to serve and grow. Our vision: “That All May Know Jesus.” Stop by the Resource Table to get connected and talk to Pastor Chuck for ministry areas in which you would like to serve.
