Christmas Series & Devotional and Christmas Eve Service

Sunday morning messages in December will center on the names ascribed to Jesus in the Gospel narratives. A Daily Devotional is also available for our instruction which can be downloaded HERE.  Each day a portion of Scripture highlights a unique name of God followed by Read More »

40 Day Prayer Challenge and Invitation

What could God do through us if we were completely open to His will and power? This question has been on our mind a lot lately. We have been praying simple prayers like, “Your will be done,” and “rearrange our lives however you see fit.” And for our church and community: revive us! We believe that God answers such prayers. Take a look at these two scriptures: “Look at the nations, and see! Be astonished! Be astounded! For a work is being done in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” – Habakkuk 1 :5 Read More »

Class Offered –“Human Suffering & God’s Sovereignty”

 We live in a world filled with evil, violence, and human suffering which raises hard questions of a loving God.  Even in the time of Christ, many desperate needs remained unmet as Jesus continued on to the next village. Where was God then, where is God now? Faith in a loving God collides with life’s most difficult and pain–filled questions. This class will focus on growing a Christ–centered perspective in the midst of such questions and consider how one best engages a suffering and traumatized world. Teacher: Pastor Brian Martin Schedule: Lesson 1: Feb. 27. As Jesus went…where was God? Lesson Read More »
