SPECIAL Adult Sunday School series!                                                                                                                                                 We meet in the metal S.S.building on the east side of the church at 9:30 a.m.   

Do you remember those good ole high school days when you would get so excited to go to your class of CVICS, GOVERNMENT, Political Science or whatever your school called those classes.   Regardless of what the class was called they were trying to teach us about our role as citizens and what the government role was.  OK,  I know I have forgotten the content of those classes..

BUT WAIT,  SOMETHING BRAND NEW,  well sort of;                          

Starting on Sunday April 28th we will have a 4 week study entitled; THE INTERSECTION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

Yes, we are going to be looking at how we are to interact with the government and how the government is supposed to treat us as Christians...

This will not be boring and who knows, we may all learn something we didn't know before, or forgot.

1) Is there a crack in the wall with the separation of church and state?

2) What did the founders of America have in mind?

3) Is America a Christian nation?

4) Collision and Cooperation; What do we do now?

Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend as you are able.

  • 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!
