Following is GREAT information on our upcoming Bible study sessions!   We meet at the S.S. building east of the church building.

We are currently looking at a DVD series presented by Max Lucado.                                                                                                   The Bible Studay in titled Unshakable Hope, Building Our Lives on the Promises of God

Meet in the Sunday School Building at 9:30;


If you are normally not a Sunday School type person; this is a great opportunity; if you are a Sunday School regular, you will not be disappointed; come to think of it everyone that attends these sessions will be inspired beyond measure. 

With this study and with the use of Scripture... we will have a better understanding of what life and death is all about.



We are entering  the season of Lent!  Lent begins 6 weeks before Easter Sunday, which is on March 31st this year.

First day of Lent is Ash Wednesday, which is February 14 this year.

Other celebrations that occur during the week before Easter Sunday are Maunday Thursday and Good Friday.

 Maundy Thursday commemorates Christs Last Supper with the apostles and his washing of their feet. Good Friday commemorates the Crucifixion of Christ.

On Easter Sunday we celebrate that Jesus rose from the dead. This day is the most important day of the church year. The climax of the service is when we read from the Bible about the resurrection.

  • Did You Know:

    Having faith and being a Christian doesn't mean we will never make mistakes. It means that through our mistakes, we experience God's grace and mercy, which are ours in Christ. This week, look for opportunities to practice mercy, grace, and forgiveness in your family.

  • Excerpt from Portals of Prayer

    True joy continues even when daily happenings don't justify it.  Happiness is a mood.  Joyfulness is a state of being.  It's what we as Christians hope nonbelievers see in us every time they meet us.  It's the ultimate "we know something they don't" situation.  We haven't just heard the Gospel.  We know it to be true.  That knowledge changes everything for us and in us.  We are not alone in this world, without meaning.  We're here for a purpose.  We're here to love and be loved by God and to love our neighbors.  We're here to share the joy that Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose from the grave for all people of all nations.  This earthly life is no longer all we have, for once this life ends, eternity awaits.  And for each person who believes that Gospel, the angels in heaven rejoice!
