Jewel Lake Road Closure

Leave some extra time to get to worship on Sunday, April 14, if you normally approach the church building from Jewel Lake Road.

The Alaska Department of Transportation is adding a continuous two-way left-turn lane on Jewel Lake Road from 88th Avenue to Strawberry Road. The road’s shoulders will be widened, the footpath will be extended, and curbs, gutters, etc. will all but improved.

This weekend (8 PM Friday 4/12 to 6 AM Monday 4/15) will be the first road closure and it will occur just south of Strawberry Rd. DOT aims to have the road open by 9 AM on Sunday. If that can’t be achieved, they will have at least one lane open with workers flagging traffic.

EXTREME Preaching — September 30

Does something in the Bible give you trouble? Do you know a passage that people struggle with or misquote? Want to find out if that radio preacher got it right? Do you wish Pastor Luke would preach on your favorite passage?

September 30 is the 5th Sunday of the month, and that means it’s time once again for EXTREME Preaching!

Bring your questions about Bible passages with you to worship. We’ll randomly select 2–3 passages, and Pastor Luke will try to preach a mini-sermon on each one. It makes him a better preacher, and you might hear the answer to a question you had about that passage.
