Here are upcoming church-wide events:
The Lord called Nehemiah, the cupbearer to the king, to lead the people of Jerusalem to rebuild the wall around the city and to rebuild their commitment to Him and to His Word. When the wall was finished (in only 52 days), the people gathered “as one man” and told Ezra the priest to bring the Word of God and appoint leaders to read, preach and teach it to them. The people worshipped God and heard from the Word from early morning until midday.
On Sun., July 12 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., we will gather together in the Worship Center to hear, read, understand and apply the Word of God in our lives. During our “Nehemiah Day,” we’ll worship our Lord through prayer and praise, appropriately concluding with the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Please pray for this unique opportunity to impact each of us personally and our church family as a whole. May our Lord move us to gather “as one man” to recommit ourselves to His Word and to worship Him.
Briarwood’s Women of the Covenant Ministry presents one of their most popular events…the Briarwood Flea Market. For two days, over 80 vendors come together to give everyone the opportunity to make their stuff your stuff! This year’s Market will benefit Urban Hope Community Church in Fairfield.
