COME LET US ADORE HIM: Are Your Looking to Grow Deeper in your faith this Christmas Season? Join us as a church as we read thru Paul Tripp’s Devotional Book “Come let Us Adore Him.” beginning December 1st. In Come Let Us Adore Him: A Daily Advent Devotional, Paul Tripp seeks to recapture our attention and reawaken our awe during Christmastime. Each day is structured like Tripp’s best-selling devotional, New Morning Mercies‚ with a compelling, gospel-centered thought followed by an extended meditation for the day. Each of the thirty-one devotions also includes a Scripture reading and notes for parents and children, equipping us to do the one thing that matters most each December — celebrate Jesus. We will have limited copies for sale on Sunday morning for $10.
COMMUNITY CAMPUS BEING USED BY THE COMMUNITY: We are so excited to share that the Town of Waxhaw Staff and their families will be utilizing the Community Campus for their Staff Christmas Party. How cool is that?!
