Join us at noon today in downtown Durham for the annual National Day of Prayer. We’ll be gathering on the plaza in front of the Carolina Theater to hear songs, speakers, and to join with hundreds of other believers as we pray for our city, our state, and our nation.
The National Day of Prayer begins with music at 11:45AM and ends at 1:15PM. Everyone is invited!
At Easter we celebrate because the tomb where Jesus was buried was found empty. His followers realized that He is not dead but alive! After that first Easter though, it wasn’t the empty tomb that became the symbol of the Christian faith, it was the cross. Ever wonder why?

There are some good reasons the early church identified with the cross. The message of the cross is about mankind’s relationship with God and the need for a sacrifice. Why would God need someone to die in our place? What kind of God would kill His own Son? What does the cross mean to us today? These are hard questions that deserve an answer. You may have noticed that life is not always wonderful. We want you to know that God is there for you not only in the good times, but also when life is hard and painful; when questions and doubts come in waves.
Our services are at 9:00 and 11:00 AM on Sunday morning. We have a nursery available during the message at both services and our children’s ministry, Kingdom Quest, starts at 11:00 for kids ages 3-12. Dress is casual.
Whatever your relationship with God, skeptic, agnostic, atheist, or believer, you are welcome.
Have you ever wondered what God is like? Understanding God has been a series of messages designed to help anyone who has ever struggled to try and figure out just who God really is, what He is like, and what that means to you. We hope you have learned a lot about God and that you will really grow spiritually as a result of this series. This Sunday will be the last installment, where we wrap everything up. Please come and invite your friends, especially anyone you know that struggles with the concept of God or the idea of really knowing Him. Your invitation could lead to the most important discovery in someone’s life!
Sunday morning services are at 9 & 11 AM with nursery provided during the messages for children under the ages of 3. Our Children’s Ministry, Kingdom Quest, for kids ages 3-12 meets during the 11 AM service. We’re right on Roxboro Rd. in northern Durham – easy to find. Check out the “Find us!” link on the right for directions and a map. We’ll see you there!
The week of June 25-29, CA is going to be having a great week of fun and education for all kids ages 5-12. Our Vacation Bible School this year is called Rodeo Roundup. Unlike other VBS programs we build ours from the ground up and we put in drama, skits, puppets, video, games, prizes, snacks and more to make sure the kids are engaged and encouraged! This year’s theme is built around not only helping kids know more about Jesus, but also helping them to share their faith with other kids and adults. The program runs from 9:00-11:45 AM each day, Monday through Friday. Then on Friday night at 7:00 we have a big Grand Finale so that parents and family can see what their kids have been doing all week and even get in on the fun themselves. You don’t want to miss it!
Everyone is invited to take part in this VBS. It is provided absolutely free of charge for all kids ages 5-12 in our community. You don’t have to be a member of our church. For more information and to register, please call the church office at 919-471-0220. We look forward to seeing your kids there!
Join us for our 2006 Drive-Thru Christmas
6:30 pm until 9:00 pm, Wednesday, Dec. 13th through Dec.16th
We join with our Spanish speaking congregation, Iglesia Evangelica “Comunidades de Formacion Cristiana” to create a unique presentation of the Christmas story. With beautiful sets, lights, costumes and actors we recreate the account of the birth of Jesus from the Bible.
Individuals and families are invited to drive through the presentation and participate from the comfort of their vehicles. Each vehicle is provided with an audio tape or CD that guides you through the route using music and narration. We are sure you will enjoy this presentation, and that it will be fun for the entire family.
And, of course, it is entirely free!
