10.20 Service Logo with Verse 10-4-14The next 10:20 Worship Service is this Sunday, December 21st at 10:20 a.m. in the chapel.

The 10:20 Worship Service has a new look! In keeping with plans to update, refresh and refocus this ministry, the 10:20 team is developing new marketing strategies to let community know that there is an alternative place where you can “Come As You Are” and experience the Word, Love and Grace of God.

This is a great opportunity to invite friends, neighbors or coworkers that are looking for an alternative style of worship, or are simply searching for answers. And if you haven’t seen what we’re up to lately, come on by for a cup of coffee and a little fellowship!

Everyone needs to belong somewhere, to someone.  You may not know it, but the truth is, God has already claimed you as His. God’s Grace and Love are there for the taking – every second of every day.
