"...I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life". John 8:12

is a special time when Christians focus on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The color purple is used during Lent as a symbol of sorrow and penitence. The cross is the symbol of Lent.
Our Lenten Challenge is listed above. Each Sunday of Lent bring in the listed food item, to be donated to Sparrow's Nest here in Glynn County. Join us as we share God's love during this holy season by ensuring that everyone in our community has something to eat!

** Easter Hydrangeas are now available to purchase to adorn the Sanctuuary and Chapel to celebrate our Risen Savior!  Plants may be taken home after Easter Sunday Services. Order envelopes are located in the pew backs, or call the church office today. You may dedicate your Hydrangea "in memory" or "in honor" of a loved one.

One of our greatest aspirations as a church is to make sure that you and your family find a safe haven in the midst of a stormy world. We consider it an honor from God for Him to send people to us that need shelter.

Children who come to us will discover loving and caring people waiting for them in their classrooms, and in their activities. Young people will experience the detemination of a staff of people who truly believe that there is a treasure inside of each young person that is just waiting to be discovered and released.

Our church is a "Family Place". We do not profess to be all-in-all to the family, be we are striving to see that every age group within the family receives the attention needed to prosper in their Christian life.
