To help Candlewood focus our prayers and fulfill our responsibility to pray beyond our borders, we are providing these requests. Please join us in praying.


Welcome to Candlewood!

This week is …

Fellowship Week

Our Sunday Gathering meets every other week.

“Matthew 5:17 (ESV) Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”

Fellowship Week is our opportunity to focus on people. How can we demonstrate God’s love for them and reflect Jesus’ righteousness for them to see? He had just told His followers they are the light of the earth. He then went on to tell us how we can bring light and that is by living Godly lives in obedience to Him. He described that obedience in the verses that followed.

I hope that in your personal encounters this week you will adopt the behaviors and attitudes Jesus talked about in His Sermon on the Mount so that you can be salt and light in the lives of the people around you.

You’ll find the location and time of the Gathering as well as times and locations for Community Groups on the What is Candlewood page. Then pray, attend a group, and commit to God’s people, the church.

We hope you will continue to excel in showing love to one another. Phone calls, texts, and emails all go a long way in that regard.

For your convenience, we have a PayPal account for Candlewood so that you can give online. If you would rather send a check, thank you; that avoids the PayPal fee. Send it to:
