"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....

This past Sunday Steve preached on the Ascension of Christ. The glorious truth about Jesus being in heaven as my representative before the Father made me want to weep. The enormity of what Jesus had done, and is still doing for me, is so overwhelming. It can be easy to hear a sermon and then go on as usual afterwards without letting the impact of the word affect our lives....Keep Reading
The gospel is to inform and affect every single aspect of our lives as individuals and as a church...about sanctification, about doctrine, about the Holy Spirit, about relationships, about how we serve, about how we steward that which God gives us, about evangelism, and about our mission. But how does the gospel inform and affect the way we think and act every day about th...Keep Reading
As we know God accurately we grow to trust him fully and fulfill our purpose for living. What King David knows about God practically helps him trust in God. In Psalm 25:1 it is God whom he says he trusts. He knows that there is only hope in Him. It is God that must be trusted, not men. It is God whom we must desire and not another. It is God that holds our yesterday, to...Keep Reading
