Worship Times: 9:00AM & 11:00AM Sunday Mornings
Sunday morning worship is a time to praise God through visual, musical, and spoken word that inspires us in our everyday lives. The traditional service is an atmosphere that is uniquely engaging yet relaxed. We hope you’ll explore the current series and plan to worship online with us this weekend.
Most people know that churches engage in worship, but they may not understand why. We worship to enter into God’s presence, to praise God as our Lord, to learn lessons of faith, to remember we are not alone on the journey of faith, to hear the call of God upon our lives, to find forgiveness when we need it, comfort in times of despair, inspiration when our hearts are low and strength to lean upon in times to come. Worship, all our worship, is offered to honor God and make a real difference in our life and yours.
On The Road
Series Began on: 12 June 2022
Many of us find ourselves on the road in the summer. We travel for vacation, to visit family, to explore. Throughout the bible we find that God’s people also found themselves on the road a lot. Usually, it had something to do with a call God had placed on their lives. Always, they found that God met them on the road. In June and July we will be exploring some of these “On the Road” stories that we find in the bible, even as we find ourselves on the road. God goes with us wherever we may find ourselves journeying.
Love in Action
Series Began on: 06 March 2022
Lent is the forty days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Jesus spent forty days with God in the wilderness before he began his public ministry. This was a time of contemplation and wrestling for Jesus. Lent can often be that time for us as well as we consider God’s role in our lives. This Lent we will draw closer to Christ by loving our neighbor.
That's Not In the Bible
Series Began on: 06 February 2022
Often, in an effort to be comforting or reassuring we turn to religious sounding platitudes. Words we have heard said over and over again. Words that seem comforting, but often actually cause more harm. We don’t remember the the origins of such phrases exactly, but we assume they come from the bible. They don’t. And they’re not helpful- so stop using them, instead use the words actually provided in scripture to offer hope and healing.

It’s been a long year and a half that we have lived with COVID 19. We have lost so much and so many. It has made us tired, sad and lonely. While things have been opening up, there’s still corona fatigue. We need a revival. We need to revive our spirits, our faith, our sense of purpose and wonder. We need to restore faith in humanity and find hope again.

It seems that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s in the kitchen that we are so often nourished. It is there that our thirst is quenched. When my kids come home from school they make a beeline to the refrigerator, thirsty or hungry. It’s at the kitchen table that they do their homework, we have family dinner, where we play a game, or thumb through messages on our phones. Throughout the months of July and August our worship will gather around the theme of “Refrigerator Theology.”
Images of Holy Community
Series Began on: 02 May 2021
We long for community. Some long for a small closely connected group of friends and family where we can hug and share freely with each other. Some long for the chance to once again be together in large numbers. However we think about community, there are characteristics that define a Christian community. What are they? How can we help to create and maintain holy relationships? What makes Christian community not only different but a powerful gift to those who live in them.

Lent is a season of spiritual preparation for the resurrection. This Lent we focus on the difference Jesus makes. As we navigate a Lent filled with challenges, we would not have thought of a year ago, what are our possibilities? What is the hope that comes from a faith in Jesus?

Look Again: Can You See It?
Series Began on: 25 October 2020
We see many things around us in the world today that affect us deeply, bring us despair, frustration, fear and apathy. Whenever Jesus encountered and opportunity to help his disciples see things in another way, he gave them a simple gift, a parable. The parables he taught continue to invite us to see the world in a new way.

Our goal this coming year is for each of us and all of us together can live a Holy Connected Life. We dare to accomplish this in the midst of a time where being disconnected and fragmented seeks to overwhelm us. We dare this because the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes it possible. All we do in our programing, in our worship and in our fellowship will work together to accomplish our goal.
The Gospel of John
Series Began on: 19 April 2020
In a time of so much uncertainty and fear, we have a chance to stay grounded by walking through John. As the worship grounds us in Biblical truth and keeps us drawn to Jesus, our foundation will be laid to allow us to address relevant issues of the Church, country and families.
Series Began on: 01 March 2020
We talk about Lent as a time of preparation. Perhaps it is more to the point to talk about Lent as a time make decisions and take action to allow the Risen Christ into our lives. Let us focus on a Spiritual Walk to bless our bodies, mind, soul and world.
