Rethink Church: Easter





“We Are Easter People”

New Sermon Series beginning Sunday, April 12th

The resurrection of Jesus changed everything for those early followers of Christ. The resurrection of Jesus can change everything for us as well, especially when we consider what it means to be “Easter People.” Come beginning April 12th as Dr. Jay begins a new Easter sermon series, “We Are Easter People.” It really could change everything!


Sunday Worship Schedule:

  8:08 a.m.      "Come As You Are"   Service

10:00 a.m.      "Traditional" service 

* Worship Services are broadcast on channel 25 every Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. and every Wednesday evening at 6 p.m.

Wednesday Night Gathering:

SPECIAL NOTICE:  Our Fellowship Hall is currently closed due to water damage after the recent winter storm, so our Wednesday night meals will not take place until further notice.  Check back weekly for the latest information.

Adult, youth and children's classes and choirs are still taking place!  We'd love for you to join us.

During the school year, we meet on Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall for dinner. College students, youth and children eat free!  Youth activities and children's activities begin at 6 p.m. on the top floor.  There are several adult bible studies to choose from.  Dr. Jay presents a Bible study in Fellowship Hall, while a ladies Bible study group meets in the Library.  The Nursery is also available on the second floor if needed.  All are welcome!



Lifetree Cafe:


LifetreeCafe_logo_4c_tagLifetree Cafe is a free hour of stories and conversation in a relaxed, coffeehouse setting.  It is a place and time for people to gather to explore life and faith.  Each week participants view original videos on a variety of topics and spend time discussing their thoughts and opinions on that week's topic.  Lifetree's motto is "You're welcome just as you are.  Your thoughts are welcome. Your doubts are welcome.  We're all in this together.  God is here, ready to connect with you in a fresh way."

It is not a Sunday school class and it is not a worship service.  Lifetree is a unique experience where people can grapple with real life issues. You do not have to be a member of State Street or any other church to participate in Lifetree.  Everyone is welcome here!


Lifetree Cafe is open on Sunday mornings from 9 - 10 am.  We hope to see you there.
