"Everyone worries; and while it may become a familiar companion in our lives, it never becomes a welcome one. Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to worry less, or not to worry at all, in the midst of your struggles?" So writes Dr. Tim Lane in his book entitled, "Living Without Worry." If you find that you are one who worries...that would make all of us...there is a great book available for$5 on our bookshelf store at the church building. We encourage you to pick the book up on Sunday, read it, and learn real answers for addressing the issue and finding victory over it....
Ultimately, we want to encourage you in your relationship with Jesus Christ. A critical part of that relationship is finding your place in His body, the church. Participation in a local church is never meant to be a mere obligation. It is a joyful privilege in which we glorify God through fruitful service in the context of meaningful relationships with other believers. Therefore, we want to give you all the information you need to help you determine if God is leading you to become a part of this church....

But despite the realitie...Keep Reading
For the last number of months I've had a number of people ask how they could be praying for my family and for our church. I've told them that concerning our church they could pray for wisdom to know what to do and when to do it. Well, as I have been praying and seeking what the Lord would have for us as a church through the preaching "diet" and discipling of the saints (c...Keep Reading
Beginning THIS Sunday we will begin what we are calling "First Sunday." These "first Sundays" are meant to be longer than usual times of fellowship together as a church family. We'll meet for worship in song and the preached word, along with participating in communion as a church family. After the service is over everyone is welcome to join in on a "family" meal together. ...Keep Reading

We'll then head over to Mike and Linore Burkard's house for the baptism service at 2:00pm where we'll sing, hear testimoni...Keep Reading
