REACH 1 MILLION WITH THE GOOD NEWS!

One-million souls. C18 is a synod wide effort to reach 1 million. Yes, 1 million people with the good news of great joy that is for all people. We have a Savior Jesus. If everyone in our synod invites just 3 people to Christmas Eve worship or Christmas for kids that goal will be achieved. Can you image 1 million people invited to hear the good news?! Materials will be available at both campuses soon to help you think about and pray for people you can invite. You can also sign up for up-dates and materials from our synod at welscongregationalservices.net/c18.

SPECIAL SERMON ON MARRIAGE

Marriage is a wonderful gift from God.  Yet, we see marriage attacked on every side because of sin.  Maybe you’d like to learn more about marriage.  Maybe you have a friend or family member struggling in a marriage that isn’t going so well.  What does God say?  How can God’s Word help?  What is marriage in God’s sight?  What blessings does God give in marriage?  Services on October 4, 7, & 8 will answer those questions from God’s Word.  Hear for yourself.  Invite a family member!
