This Wednesday, March 5th, we will be beginning our Lenten journey by having a pancake supper at 6:00 followed by a worship service at 7:30. Won’t you join us as begin the road to Jerusalem?
This Wednesday, the Youth Group will be hosting our annual Chili Cook-Off. The tasting starts at 6:30. The winner will be given the prized “Golden Spoon” while second place will get the “silver spoon” and third place the “bronze spoon.”
The event will be free, but votes will cost $1 and there will be a free-will offering. All proceeds will go to helping pay for the Summer mission trips to Austin, TX and the Navajo Reservation in NM.
Come out and enjoy some good Chili while helping our youth reach their fundraising goal!
This Sunday, Azle Christian Church celebrates the 40th anniversary of their current sanctuary. We began in 1883 worshiping God under the shade of a brush arbor. Since that time the church has grown and expanded, building in 1893, 1950 and 1974. The latest addition, the Fellowship Hall, classrooms and offices was added in 2010. With notes from our ancestors in the faith and letters of encouragement from former pastors, we will celebrate the rich heritage of faith that has been handed to us, and look forward to the ways God moves us in the coming days and years.
Azle Christian Church is participating in this year’s Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. Fundraising has begun already for this project. You can visit here for more information.
This Wednesday, January 29th, we will be hosting Feeding our Neighbors, a free-meal for the community. This week we will be having soup to try and warm us up during the impending cold front. Dinner starts at 6:30. We hope you will make the trek out to enjoy some free food and conversation (conversation optional!) As all are welcome at Christ’s table, so all are welcome at Azle Christian Church
The Cabinet and Elders will meet on January 11th to plan the upcoming six months for the church. If you would like to attend or need directions for where we are meeting, please contact the Church secretary (817)-444-3527.
We will be having two Christmas Eve services this year, one at 5 PM and the other at 11 PM.
The 5:00 p.m. service will involve our children. They will choose to be Angels, Shepherds, Magi or animals, in order to help tell the Christmas story. The service will be filled with carols and will conclude with a special way for us to share the light of Christ.
The 11:00 p.m. service will be a traditional experience of Lessons and Carols. Some of our young adults will read the Christmas story from the gospels, and we will sing carols to celebrate the birth of Christ. Toward midnight, we will share communion and pass the light of Christ. We will conclude with “Silent Night,” as we light our individual candles and form a circle around the sanctuary.
We hope you will come be a part of our worshipping the birth of Christ this Christmas at either or both of our services!
Worship services on 12/8 will be cancelled because of the icy conditions. Please stay warm and worship at your homes!
We will be putting the finishing touches on the Sanctuary this Sunday during the Hanging of the Greens. Rev. Lobaugh will also be starting our Advent sermon series “Kneeling” as he preaches “Kneeling in Desperation.” Join us at 11 for worship at Azle Christian Church.
