    You Belong – a membership class

    Becoming a member of a church is a big decision! If you feel called to Cedar Hills or would just like to explore making us your ‘home church’,  the next session of “You Belong” Membership Class. It will be held for 6 weeks on Sundays at 9:45am beginning April 7, 2024.

    Nursery for ages 0-36 months is available at this same time, as well as classes for children of all ages.

    No registration is needed.

    Son of Man

    Son of Man

    I watched a fascinating short video this past week on the meaning of the phrase, “Son of Man”.  It’s first used in the book of Daniel but is also the number one way Jesus describes himself.  He doesn’t use Messiah, or King or Lord… He uses this strange phrase: “Son of Man”.

    This video connects the phrase back to the garden of Eden.  In the garden, there are two types of creations—beast and man.  And with these two types of creations are two kingdoms —the kingdom of the beast and the Kingdom of God in which man was co-ruling over with Him.

    But in this story, man starts to doubt God, and makes a troubling decision to act in accordance of the kingdom of beasts—aligning with his beastly nature and turning against the Kingdom of God.

    So now the question remains: who will reign with the kingdom of God since man chose the kingdom of beasts?  So God kicks them our of the garden to rules with the beasts.

    And with the kingdom of beasts comes every bad thing—darkness, death, sin, torture, murder… you name it! Everything ‘beastly’!

    This thread exists throughout the entire Old Testament, with the lingering question… is there a Son of Man that will deny the beast and reign again with God?

    And there is! A man comes and identifies himself as the “Son of Man” – a phrase they would have understood to be the one who will conquer the beast.

    And not only will he conquer the beast, but all other humans can now choose to worship him and side with him.  They also get to be restored back to the Kingdom of God AND given the same power to deny the beast as the Son of Man did.

    This was a new concept to me! I’ve read the gospels, and heard Jesus calling himself “Son of Man” but never stopped to ask, “Why?”

    Are you curious??? Somewhat fascinated? I can’t tell the story as well as the video—so go watch it!

      June 5 Townhall Meeting

      On Sunday, June 5 in between services at 9:45am we will meet as a church to discuss upcoming changes for our denomination and a potential joining of the Alliance of Reformed Churches.  This is part 2 of a discussion we began back in February.  All are welcome to come and ask questions.  We’ll be directly responding to questions asked on the 4-Question Survey many filled out in mid-May.


      Childcare and activities will be provided for ages 0 to 3rd grade.

      Ask An Elder

      CEDAR HILLS FUTURE – ASK AN ELDER –  The Elders have been discerning our current partnership with the RCA (Reformed Church in America), and in light of major changes coming in the RCA, they recommend a future partnership with the ARC (Alliance of Reformed Churches). Next Sunday, May 15 and Sunday, May 22, between the services in the Gathering Space, the Elders desire to hear input from the congregations. Bring your questions and also join us in praying for clarity as we continue to discern next steps for Cedar Hills.

      2. Cedar Hills’ Future pt. 2 (May 2022)
      3. Letter from the Elders (May 2022)

      The RCA requires churches leaving the denomination to join another denomination or network. We believe that there is wisdom in this requirement. We long to partner with other churches who are like minded in theology and mission. We want to grow in kingdom impact and we believe that God does this when like-minded congregations unite in mission.  We are requesting to join The Alliance of Reformed Churches (ARC).

      YOU BELONG membership class

      Are you curious what it means to be a part of Cedar Hills? Or what it means to be a member of a church? YOU BELONG is a class to explore both these things at Cedar Hills.  The class runs six weeks beginning Sunday, April 24 at 9:45am. (May 1, 2022 is the final deadline to join).


      Some fun membership benefits – use of the church for events without rental fees (baby showers, parties, reunions), a discount for weddings and events, and a tuition discount at Noah’s Ark Preschool! As well as the spiritual benefits of affirming a commitment to where God wants to plant you and find a home for your unique gifts.

      YOU BELONG is held a few times every year. If this session doesn’t work for you, let the office know and we will be in touch when the next session is scheduled.
