Awaken: January 26th

Last night at Awaken we concluded our series on Jesus and Baseball.  We began our worship with several songs.  Kyle Howton brought the message.  We talked about “Judging.”  After some message time we had a time of prayer and opportunity to fill up the prayer board (pictured below).  Then we closed with a couple of songs and called it a night.  Come on out and join us next week at Awaken.  Worship starts at 8:00pm.  Bring a friend with you next week and we will see you soon!

Hallelujah – Hope for Haiti

Thanks COLE!

We have a whole lot of audio and video demands every week at Awaken.  Cole has been running the soundboard/video/audio for us at Awaken since we started back in January 2007!  We have moved rooms several times and every time we do Cole handles it and makes us sound good and puts up the lyrics for the songs, the videos we watch, and music we listen to!  We are grateful to you for your commitment and dedication and for worshipping with us at Awaken.  Thanks for always being there and being able to handle everything!  Cole recently got a new job and he will be working during Awaken on Tuesday nights now due to his schedule.  We will miss your soundboarding skills and you with us in worship.  Congrats on the job!  Next time you see Cole tell him thanks!

Awaken: January 19th

Last night at Awaken we had a great time.  Our music was a little different tonight as we introduced some piano into the mix a little bit.  It was great.  We began our worship with several songs.  After some singing we continued our series with this weeks message.  Kyle Howton talked about Jesus and Baseball.  In particular we looked a giving.  As we looked a giving we also had a special offering tonight for UMCOR in Haiti.  If you would like to give to UMCOR please do so by following one of the links on the right.  After some message time we had a time for prayer and meditation and then we closed with a couple more songs!  Come and join us next week as we wrap up our Jesus and Baseball series.  Bring a friend to worship with you.  See you soon!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Dr. King died at the hands of an assassin on April 4, 1968, a few months short of his fortieth birthday. Human history has forever been changed by the movement he headed. Our current level of sensitivity to human rights issues and inclusiveness can be traced to the strides gained by the Civil Rights Movements of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Martin Luther King, Jr., was a rare human being who sacrificed his life for a vision of equality for every person — not just African Americans. On November 2, 1983, both the Senate and the House of Representatives agreed that we should never forget Dr. King’s contributions to the world: the third Monday in January was declared a national holiday.

The King Center is the official, living memorial dedicated to the advancement of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., leader of America’s greatest nonviolent movement for justice, equality and peace.  Awesome Intro… Click it.

National Civil Rights Museum
Located at the Lorraine Motel, the assassination site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., chronicles key episodes of the American civil rights movement  and the legacy of this movement to inspire participation in civil and human rights efforts globally, through our collections, exhibitions, and educational programs.
