Worship at 9 & 10:30

Nursery is available if needed during both services 
Sunday School available during 10:30 service for pre-k through 4th grade

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent! We will be singing your favorite songs of the season in both services. If your family is interested in lighting the Advent candle, let us know! 

We also have fabulous Advent devotionals that are perfect for all ages. Lead your family in discussion, prayer, and meditation during this season of anticipation.
Dying Well Packets
In the first 3 weeks of November, we had a sermon series on dying well. We weren't sure what the response from the congregation would be - and we are overwhelmed with gratitude at how many of you are taking these packets home to fill out and make preparations for your family. So far we have handed out 50 packets. Before we make another batch, we are asking for folks to add their names to a sign-up sheet so we know exactly how many more to make. There is a clipboard outside the sanctuary! Thank you!
The River Valley District is hosting its Cluster Charge Conference at Homestead Church again. All are encouraged to attend! We will be gathering with other clergy and lay members from churches around the district, as well as our District Superintendent Cynthia Williams.
If you're planning on joining us for Pizza before the movie, add your name to the clipboard outside the sanctuary so we know how much pizza to order! 
Our Middle School Youth Group meets again on 12/9 after the second service!
We absolutely love how Hy-Vee supports our local schools. In the spring of the 2017-2018 school year, we collected Hy-Vee receipts and turned them in to Gibbs Elementary. For every $250 in receipts given, Hy-Vee donated $1 to the school. They ended up donating over $3,000 to our local schools! We are collecting receipts at the front desk for the ENTIRE school year! 

Reminder: Text giving is quick and easy! The first time you send in a text offering, you will be sent a link to register your card information. Every time you text give after that, your card information is remembered!
