Advent Series

Whether you anticipate the holiday season with excitement or dread the busyness and loneliness it can bring, experience God’s love and grace in the midst of real life this year. Christ’s coming brings his peace, joy, all-consuming love – those are the true gifts of Christmas and they are worth celebrating! Join us for Advent services starting Sunday, December 2 at 10:45 am.

Baking Day

Join us for some Christmas baking on Saturday, December 15 from 9 am-3 pm. Stay all day, or come just for an hour – we’d love to have you! As the cookies are finished, we’ll pack them up for the congregation to enjoy on Sunday, with donations to benefit the CRA Student Ministry. Not a baker? Flour, sugar, vanilla, and other baking supplies can be donated in the church office for this event. For more information, or to register for the baking day, go to

Eve Service

Got plans this Christmas Eve? You do now! Join us for a family candlelight service on Monday, December 24 at 6:30 pm. We’ll celebrate the truest gift of Christmas – Jesus Christ himself!

Hearbeat of LIma
Crib Collection

Heartbeat of Lima is a pregnancy resource center that provides hope, education and resources to women during their pregnancy and until their child is three years old. They offer free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds and several different parenting programs, including a fatherhood program.

We love to support Heartbeat, so each year, we have a crib set up in the Atrium to collection donations of new or gently used clothing and baby items. Starting on Sunday, January 2, the crib will be ready to accept diapers (especailly larger sizes), onesies, baby wipes, and formula.

Since Heartbeat operates strictly on donations, monetary donations are gratefully accepted. Checks can be made to Heartbeat of Lima and sent to the office at 1225 West Elm St. Lima, OH 45805 or given to Brenda Keller.
