Doctrine Class - Fall 2017

This fall, adults are invited to take part in an in-depth study of doctrine on Sunday evenings. Some might be intimidated by a study like this, but doctrine is the foundation for our worship to God and leads to our love for Him (6 Great Reasons to Study Doctrine). This fall we will be studying the doctrine of the Bible (Bibliology) and Dispensationalism. Space is limited, so please contact Pastor Luke if you are interested in taking part in this study.

German Missions Potluck

Join us Wednesday, August 30 at 6:00 p.m. for a time of fellowship and having our hearts warmed for the spread of the Gospel. We will be hearing from Daniel Arnold, missionary to Germany. Please bring a main dish to pass and either a side dish or dessert. If you have a great German recipe you'd like to share, this would be a perfect time to make it.

Summer in the Psalms 2017

Coming together as a church family to love one another, encourage one another, and to study God's Word together is vitally important for all of us. That is why this summer, to encourage the church family to come together and grow closer to God and to each other, we will be having a Summer in the Psalms. Starting June 4, we will be having a time of fellowship through the Psalms. Each Sunday evening a grill-out dinner will be provided by the church at 6 pm. Along with the food, there will be singing, a lesson from a Psalm, and time geared for the children. Please join the church family for refreshment through fellowship, food, and God's Word.

Members' Meeting

On Sunday, July 16, during the Sunday school hour our second quarter members' meeting is scheduled. We have four meetings each year to update the church on different aspects of the ministry. This meeting will include financial updates, voting on church officers, voting on deacons, and voting on partnering with a new missionary. Church family, please prioritize these meetings as they help us remain focused on our purpose of exalting God, edifying the saints, and evangelizing the world.
