Dear Church Family, Friends and Visitors,

In the midst of all the upheaval that COVID-19 is causing, it has been so encouraging to see our church rising to the occasion and reaching out to our community. Today I heard it said that the church shines her best when the times get their worst. We are blessed to have such a strong vibrant church, especially as we encounter new challenges together.

As your church, we are adapting daily to be the best version of Christ’s body we can be; looking at creative ways to connect and meet needs while doing so in a wise and responsible manner. As we follow the CDC and state guide-lines to help prevent the transmission of the virus, the regular services on Sunday’s and Wednesday’s in the building are temporarily cancelled. Our offices will remain open during normal hours, and SOS will continue on a limited basis.
During this time that Worship Services have been postponed in the building, we will offer a Sunday sermon here and on Face Book. You can watch from your home and still worship as a family (See Links Above and Below).
If you haven’t already, please contact the church to subscribe to our “email blast” for the latest news pertaining to our church. Also, navigate to and like our Facebook page for more (see links below)
In His Grace,
Pastor Michael Miller

Many times throughout the year 2019, you probably heard the old joke,  “What does next year hold…?  I don’t know, I don’t have 2020 vision…”  Well we now find ourselves in the year 2020 and the question is still germane.  The answer; however, may take a bit more exploration to determine what God has in store for us as individuals, and as a Church.  Follow along as we unpack what this new vision means as we, Love, Learn, and Lead…
Chronological Bible Readings

Dear Church Family,

Because Christ’s church is built on the solid, unchanging foundation of God’s Word, the Holy Bible, we are inviting the entire church to read through the Bible in one year, 2019. We will provide a user-friendly guide in each week’s worship bulletin, so we can all read together and stay in step with this life changing goal.  A booklet of the readings will also be made available at the Christian Life Center Desk or the Sanctuary Vestibule, and the list of Readings can be accessed from the link below (opens to an Adobe .pdf file)

Chronological Bible Readings for 365 days
