...Know, Grow, Go, Show, Sow
We are a congregation that enjoys worshiping and learning about God in a casual atmosphere, with lots of great activities for kids and teens, and many opportunities for you and your family to become active in a caring, Christian community.
We are a church where lives are transformed in Jesus Christ. The cross in our logo signifies the life we have in Him and that He is the foundation of all we do. The leaves represent the five aspects of our mission statement: To help persons KNOW Christ and GROW in their faith in order to GO outside our doors and SHOW His love through words and actions to SOW seeds of faith in others.
SPC Cares Makes a Difference
We came, we saw, we conquered...leaves that is. Last month showcased how a simple act of kindness can impact our community.
On November 7th, a team of nearly 50 volunteers of all ages from our church, went into one of the neighborhoods near the church off of Fishcreek Road.
Armed with rakes, tarps, leaf blowers, brooms and even a riding lawn mower, our group raked the leaves of 27 homes, front and back yards included, in about three hours.
It was a beautiful day, and the team enjoyed the fellowship that only working together for others can bring.
“It was wonderful to see the reaction of the homeowners when we explained what we were doing,” said Jenny Walls. “At first they seemed skeptical, but once they saw us in action they were so appreciative!”
The goal of the event was to get to know some of our neighbors, and let them know that we’re a church who cares about our community. We also distributed flyers with information about our Advent programming.
Since the event, the church has received several thank you notes, some with donations, from residents that we helped.
Look for another opportunity in the Spring of 2016 to get involved with this outreach of our church, SPC Cares.

"Follow me and you will see, the library is fun for you and me!” -Dr. Seuss
Beginning January 1st and continuing through February 29th the Church Library is having a circulation promotional for all library materials.
I would love to tell you that I am not the kind of person who ascribes to New Year’s Resolutions, but that’s just not true. Whether it is the idea of joining a gym or decisions for healthy living. Whether it is dedication at church or finding balance or organization between life and work. Whatever it may be for you, I imagine that you too want to improve, to grow, and to find stability. We all honestly and passionately want things to get better. It’s part of our human nature. We get frustrated when we feel stuck, unsuccessful or incapable of “getting it together.”Read more...
