On the last Sunday in October, Compass Community Church (compassefca.org) in Navarre held its second Family Sunday of 2021.
A new church start-up, Compass has made the fifth Sundays a time to celebrate what God is doing through its literacy tutoring outreach ministry and to better connect with the children’s families.
The congregation of Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Navarre is anticipating the arrival of a new hymnal, the fruit of more than eight years of review and research performed by its denomination, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).
The hymnals the congregation currently uses were published in 1993, a revision of the WELS’ 1940 hymnal.
On Sunday, Oct. 10, Midway Assembly of God “relaunched and reopened” as East Bay Church.
This relaunch builds on a foundation laid by Pastor David Lang, who served this local congregation for 40 years.
Before Andrew Bosak realized his true calling, he thought he might become a boat captain.
As a college student, he worked as a deckhand on charter boats out of Destin.
Seeing the collection of tents in the rear lot at Ahm Yisrael Messianic Synagogue on Military Trail in Navarre last month, a passerby might assume the synagogue was hosting some campers.
In fact, the tents were an integral part of Ahm Yisrael’s celebration of the Feast of Sukkot.
In fast-growing communities like Navarre and Gulf Breeze, it is likely that many new residents are perusing church websites to find their new “church home.”
One of the key criteria that influences that decision is a church’s approach to corporate worship.
The focus of the weekly worship service in most Protestant churches is the sermon – the preaching of the Word of God, the Bible.
The layout of most Protestant church sanctuaries bears this out; the pulpit, not the altar, sits front and center.
