17th Annual Cruise-in

Friday, September 7, 2018 from 5-9 PM
 
COS had the honor of serving food again at this year’s annual event. Thrivent Financial assisted us with seed money and t-shirts and many volunteers and donations helped push this event to an all-time record in terms of donations raised ($35,000).  This year’s benefit helped the Appledoorn family with their many financial needs.  Their 13 year old daughter Chloe suffers from Anorexia Nervosa.  Your attendance and help was so appreciated!! Join us again next year for a fun and exciting night of fellowship as we show our love through Christ, serving others in our community.  Thank you to Terry Reimink and Tom Nunheimer for organizing our church’s participation.

Resisting Temptation

There was no Sermon recorded for Sunday, July 1. The topic was resisting temptations, which include, but are not limited to, being negative, criticizing others, cheating, complaining or gossiping. Change your thoughts to instead be thankful in all things. Bridle your sinful desires, and have confidence that, through His innocent sacrifice, by the grace in what He did for us, that you have the will and the power to lead good, pleasing lives. Amen.
