The Church at the Butte is A Place to Belong. Whether you are a community leader, business owner, retired senior, single adult, or a young family you can find A Place to Belong with us.

Together, we are making a difference in our community through The Shepherd’s Closet, Meals on Wheels, All-Stars for children, WIRED for youth and Legacy for seniors. We also help support church planters throughout the United States, thousands of missionaries in approximately 200 countries.


Several of our members make trips to our mission church in Mexico to support them and strengthen their service. We participate with Franklin Graham’s  Operation Christmas Child. This ministry distributes gift-filled shoe boxes to children throughout the world, demonstrating that people matter to God.

Drop in on a Sunday morning just after nine o’clock for Coffee and Conversation. Then stay for Sunday Morning Worship at ten o’clock. Pick up some brochures and make a couple of new friends. You may discover A Place to Belong sooner than you think.

Sermon 12-12-2021

Sunday Sermon 12/12/2021


Jesus is the Gift of Christmas


John 1:1-16

Jesus is the gift

  • What He left so that He could be the gift
  • All the wonders of Heaven


  • What He became so that he could be the gift
  • He became flesh
  • He dwelt among us

The gift has great value

  • What the gift includes
  • Grace
  • Truth
  • Why we need the gift
  • God’s grace is our only hope
  • God’s truth is the only truth
  • What the gift cost Jesus
  • It cost Him much suffering
  • It cost Him His earthly life

The gift must be received

  • It just has to be accepted
  • A gift cannot be earned or else it ceases to be a gift
  • A gift cannot be purchased or else it ceases to be a gift
  • The gift is rejected by most
  • They don’t understand the gospel
  • They don’t think they need a Savior
  • They Fear social rejection
  • The world looks more appealing
