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.

Sunday Sermon 12/13/2020
Finding True Joy in Christmas 



Matthew 2:1-12

  • As we approach Christmas this year, I think what we are all hoping to experience is joy
  • The question we must ask ourselves is what will bring us the joy we seek for?
  1. What are we hoping to get for Christmas?
  • God gives us many blessings but they are all for the purpose of pointing back to Him and His goodness
  • God wants us to have a deeper joy than worldly things could ever bring
  • There is a deeper joy waiting for us in Jesus if we will worship Him
  1. What do you want to give for Christmas?
  • Sometimes we make Christmas all about us and what we want to receive
  • We can worship Jesus by giving and as a result, receive joy
  • We can give to Jesus in many practical ways
    • Sharing the gospel
    • Helping the poor
    • Forgiving someone
  • Jesus gave His life for you
