Abide in Christ
John 15:1-8; Galatians 5:22-23
I Am the True Vine
15:1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.3 Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.6 If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.8 By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

We are excited to have our new surface level and garage parking available for Sunday! Please enter from Oak Lawn Avenue on the south side of campus (previously Newton Ct). Here is a New Campus Map PDF. You may also park behind Oak Lawn West, Shops of Highland Park, and where permitted in the neighborhood. Valet will be available on Wycliff Ave. for senior adults and the handicapped (turn right into the Shops of HP parking lot).
Opening Our Doors on Sundays
As we open our New Doors, we will need parents or guardians to reserve a spot for their child in our Children’s Ministry Sunday morning programs at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. This helps ensure we have an appropriate number of volunteers and space each Sunday at both hours. If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are no longer requesting reservations for attendance in our Worship Services. Once the services have reached max attendance for Sunday, we will have overflow rooms available.
If you are in need of pastoral care during this season, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our pastors through Wilma Morgan at 214-224-2742 or email at email@example.com. We are eager to walk with you and encourage all of our flock during this time. If you have physical or financial needs that our diaconate can assist with, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have also set up a Prayer Wall where you can submit prayer requests and pray for others during this season.
