Sermon Series

Join us as we seek "wisdom from above," a wisdom that enables us to be "doers of the Word" in every aspect of our lives and to live as a people characterized by good works that flow from our faith in Christ. 

Journey to Bethlehem!  

We are pleased and excited to announce that the JTB Committee has unanimously agreed to move forward with the Journey to Bethlehem Church Ministry Presentation on Dec. 2-4 this year! Steve and Heather Ezzy have volunteered to be the Directors and will present a Ministry Moment on June 19 regarding the details of this event. We just wanted to announce this wonderful news and ask for your prayerful consideration of your participation in this blessed event. JTB Committee Members will soon be contacting the past JTB Leads for their commitment to lead their respective teams, as well as looking for volunteer participants for all of the acting and support role opportunities to glorify God through this great outreach. 

May Congregational Meeting Recap

We had a wonderful business meeting Wednesday night! Our first in person meeting since January 2020! The full slate of nominees for our committees and boards was approved.
In addition, the motion from the Trustees was approved for additional budget to accomplish the church maintenance work needed.
We'd like to thank all of those who have served on various committees and in various roles who are rotating off this year. We'd also like to express a special thank you to Karen Hanson for her 20+ years of serving faithfully as the church's financial secretary. Well done Karen!

Congratulations to our New College Grads!! May our Lord bless you as you continue your journey with him.
