Sow the Word in 2020:
In 2020, we are going to "Sow God's Word" into our lives! Together as a congregation, we will be focusing on key passages of scripture--to read, to meditate and to be transformed by the power of God's Word! Each month, there will be a theme and key verse for our focus.
Here is how you can dig deeper.
1. Connect with our daily readings
These brief daily readings will dig even deeper into the theme for the week, helping you reflect on how to apply God's Word to your daily life more effectively. You can receive these readings through an email, by joining the facebook group, or by requesting a written copy of the readings (you can do more than one). Sign up to connect on your connection card Sunday morning or by contacting Pastor Dawn HERE or call (402)-490-2542. Be sure to let us know what format you would like for the readings.
2. Reflect in a small group
Every Wednesday, 6:30-8:00 pm there is a discussion group where we reflect on the messages from Sunday in a small group format. Contact Pastor Dawn for more info.
3. Join us for worship on Sundays
Each week, the Sunday message will teach further into the monthly topic. If you are unable to join us in person due to illness or work, you can catch the message through Facebook Live, through our sermons page on the website here or through subscribing to our Youtube channel. Content will be updated typically by Wednesday of that week if you like our Facebook page or subscribe to our Youtube channel you will be notified when content is ready for viewing.

Dec. 19, City Wide Prayer Focus
As part of our commitment to the Citywide Prayer network, Celebration has agreed to pray for the Metro area on the 19th of every month. This month’s prayer focus is "Refugees". During this month when we celebrate our Savior’s birth, we see that He understands what it's like to be a refugee, because He was one. Historically our state has been identified as a place of sanctuary and supply. Beginning with the pioneers we have been a city of refuge welcoming those from many nations. Recently adequate and safe housing for local immigrants has been in the Metro news. This has once again reminded us of their needs and concerns and our responsibility to care for those that call our city their home. May we be His heart in the Heartland for the dispossessed! For a list of scriptures and prayer points follow the link HERE.
