Welcome from Pastor Griffith

Dear Friends, As Senior Pastor of Carriage Lane it is a pleasure to welcome you to this website and to our church. God is doing some incredible things in our lives as He transforms us by His grace. I have been at Carriage Lane since 1990 and I have watched Him continue to grow this body into a caring family committed to know Christ and make Him known.

The Christmas season is upon us and people are getting in the mode of shopping, decorating, going to Christmas programs and parties, and planning gatherings with family and friends. We often have high expectations of this holiday but frequently get let down because we place our hopes on things and experiences that were never meant to satisfy us. How do we resist these unrealistic expectations and keep our focus on the true and lasting meaning behind the holiday? The answer is seeking the glory and the mystery of who Christ is and what He came to do. Come join us this Advent Season as we examine the glory of Christ at Christmas.

During the four Sunday’s leading up to Christmas we’ll be studying one of the greatest passages in the Bible on the nature and impact of Christ’s first coming – John chapter one. We’re calling this series “Christmas Is About the Glory of Christ.”

We’ll be looking at John 1:1-18 verse by verse to examine The Glory of Christ’s Divinity, Light, Gift, Incarnation, and conclude at our evening Christmas Eve service with – The Glory of Christ’s Grace. We welcome you to come and re-examine the meaning of Christ’s coming with us and its significance for the world and for our lives personally. We also welcome you to our special Christmas Festival Concert Dec. 17 at 6pm. May the Lord fill us with renewed wonder and awe at the glory of Christ!
