New Course Beginning Wednesday, October 27 | 6:00pm
New Course beginning Wednesday, October 27.
This 6-week course begins by reviewing the 400 Silent Years between the Testaments in preparation for the 1st coming of Jesus. Then there will focus on the person of Jesus as seen in the four gospel accounts and from four distinct vantage points. And to end the series, the course will cover the creation of the early church — the Body of Christ — in the book of Acts.
Core Courses will not meet on October 20. Please join us for Hotdogs, Hayrides, and Missions.

Friday & Saturday (November 12-13)
New to Alliance? The Weekender is your on-ramp to the life of our church. You will learn about the vision, values, and history of our church, how to get plugged into groups, how to serve, and more!
Sunday, November 14 | Both services
From time to time we set aside a time to baptize new believers at our Sunday morning Worship Services.
Believers are called to be baptized as a symbol of belief in whole-heartedly following Jesus Christ. The biblical church of Jesus Christ is called to make disciples and to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
HOW TO CELEBRATE ADVENT
Sunday, November 14 | 3:00 – 5:00pm
The Christmas season is the most wonderful time of the year! But for many of us, the awe of the advent season has been cluttered with the trappings of a busy and self-centered society. This workshop will explore the importance of waiting on Christ as we reenact the story of His first coming, and wait for his second coming. We will explore a few practical ways to get the most out of this advent season in your heart and in your home.
