Good Friday & Easter at 24 Church

Easter-2019---Insta.jpg

It may be hard to believe, but Good Friday and Easter are right around the corner. In a few short weeks, we will gather as a church family to reflect upon and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In truth we do this every single week, but these holidays are an especially significant time of remembrance for believers.

Easter Sunday is always an exciting time at 24 church. Our church family will host three different Sunday gatherings, and we’ll have the the opportunity to meet many new people. But beyond this, Easter Sunday has the potential to be the day where many in our community hear the gospel for the very first time. Or, it may be the day when those who are struggling with faith, reconnect with God in a meaningful way.

If you’re part of 24 church, we’re asking you to pray that God would move powerfully in our midst during our Good Friday and Easter gatherings. Additionally, we want to ask you to consider who you might invite to church for one of these gatherings.

Here are two interesting statistics to ponder:

  • “among people who don’t go to church, 79% don’t mind their friends talking about their faith and 73% disagree that their friends talk about their faith too much.”

  • “63% of Americans say a personal invitation from a friend or neighbor would be very or somewhat effective in getting them to visit a church.”

With this in mind, let us ask, “Is God leading you to invite a friend, co-worker, neighbor, or family member to church this Easter?”

That invitation might be vastly more effective than you realize.


4/19 - Good Friday - 7:00pm

4/21 - Easter Sunday - 8:30am, 9:45am, 11:00am

We Have An App!

We have a new App for your smartphone. It doesn’t do everything, but it does a few things really well. It will help you give online, find a Micro Church, register for an event, and update your information in our database.

All you have to do to take advantage is search “Church Center App” in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and install it. Once it’s installed, you can easily find 24 church from the listed churches in our area, login to the app via email, and start using that bad boy. We hope you love it!

Christmas Eve

We love gathering the 24 church family each year on Christmas Eve for a time of worship together. Don’t miss one of our favorite events of the year! This is a brief, fun, all-ages worship service for the whole family. If you have small children, we do offer limited childcare for preschool only.

Come celebrate the risen Christ with us on Christmas Eve at 8pm!

Starlight: A Celebration of Christmas

This Sunday we begin our annual celebration and reflection on Christmas.

Christmas means lots of things to lots of people, but for believers especially, it’s the time of year where we remember that Jesus willingly came to earth as a human to live among us. He lived, cried, and laughed as we do. He experienced everything we experience, yet he was without sin. Ultimately Jesus would give his life so that we could be redeemed.

Join us for the next three weeks as we celebrate Christmas.

  • Sunday, Dec 9th - 9am & 10:45am

  • Sunday, Dec 16th - 9am & 10:45am

  • Sunday, Dec 23rd - 9am & 10:45am

  • Christmas Eve, Dec 24th - 8pm

Angel Tree 2018

This Sunday you’ll begin to see Angel Tree Angels in the lobby of 24 church. If you’d like to support a needy child this Christmas, grab an angel off the tree and sign your name to the sheet at the Welcome Desk. Then, shop accordingly and spoil your angel with clothes and toys! Remember that everything you buy needs to be wrapped, put in a large trash bag with tag attached, and brought back at 24church by Sunday, December 16th.

If you have any questions, Debbie Shearon will be happy to help!

New Resource: Making Sense of God

Making-Sense-of-God.jpg

We are always striving to put good resources in the hands of our people. This is why we keep good Bibles and a few books we really believe in at the Welcome Desk each Sunday. This Sunday, you'll see a new book: Making Sense of God: An Invitation to the Skeptical, by Tim Keller available for purchase in the lobby at the Welcome Desk. 

Tim Keller ministers in New York City where he regularly interacts with people who are understandably skeptical about the Christian faith. Ministering in this environment, as well as embracing his own questions about God, has led Keller to write this book. If you have doubts about God, or struggle with christianity, this book is a great way to begin thinking through why the christian faith is plausible. Making Sense of God is an accessible read, but we wouldn’t call it an easy one either. However, if you’re really struggling with faith, Keller’s wisdom is worth your time.

"Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians."

New Resource: You Can Change

We are always striving to put good resources in the hands of our people. This is why we keep good Bibles and a few books we really believe in at the Welcome Desk each Sunday. This Sunday, you'll see a new book: You Can Change, by Tim Chester available for purchase in the lobby at the Welcome Desk. 

This book has been out for several years and is perhaps the best resource available about how the gospel transforms our bad behaviors and negative emotions. Are there sins that it seems you'll never defeat? That feeling is normal, but it's not true. Change is possible because of Jesus! And this book can help you understand how that process works. 

"There are few books that are shockingly honest, carefully theological, and gloriously hopeful all at the same time. You Can Change is all of these and more. It is wonderful to be reminded that you and I are not stuck, and it's comforting to be guided by someone who knows well the road from where we are to where we need to be."
