This week is …


Our Sunday Gathering meets every other week. Join us for our next Sunday Gathering on February 4, 2024 at 10:30AM.

See our Sunday Gathering page for more information.

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.


A note from one of our leaders:

“And he went and lived in a city called Nazareth, so that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, that he would be called a Nazarene.” — Matthew 2:23

Being called a Nazarene wasn’t exactly an honor in those days. The upper crust of Jewish society in Jerusalem thought of Nazareth and the region of Galilee as a backward area populated by uneducated country bumpkins. Yet the King and creator of the universe chose that place to be His abode while living among His creatures. And His most effective ministry was among individuals and small groups.

As we go through this Fellowship Week, it’s good to remember that we don’t need to preach to thousands, although Jesus did that as well. We just need to be His witnesses with whomever He leads us to. We don’t need to be spectacular; we need to be available. I hope you’ll be on the lookout this week for someone who could use a friend.
