  • Preparing for Easter

    For many people the Lenten season has been thought of as a time of self-sacrifice and list of spiritual chores. Like New Year’s resolutions, we find ourselves falling short, leaving us feeling like we’re not spiritually measuring up to what we should be.

    In his letter to the Philippians, the apostle Paul joyfully turns to spiritual practices that draw him closer to God amid persecution and imprisonment. These practices keep Paul connected to a sense of God’s power and presence. Joy flows from Paul and becomes a vital part of his relationship with the Philippians.

    “Because of This I Rejoice” by Max O. Vincent is a 6-week study of Philippians that explores what Paul teaches about joyfully practicing spiritual disciplines. The intent of these disciplines is to focus less on ourselves and more on God. We will be kicking off this study on Wednesday, March 6th with a special fellowship dinner and worship time at 6:00pm in the fellowship hall. The study will continue for the following 5 sessions on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm in large downstairs classroom. The study will culminate through our Seder Worship dinner on Wednesday, April 17th at 6:30pm in the sanctuary. The cost of the book is $11. Please see Ingrid to order a book and sign up for the study, which will be led by Pastor Kevin.

  • Leap of Faith

    Leap of Faith will be starting up again... for young children this time!! Sage Huber will be teaching ballet and tap to pre-K and elementary children on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-6:45 pm in the fellowship hall beginning March 6 until April 24. A love offering will be taken up from participating families to help with youth summer camp and mission experiences. Space is limited. See Meagan Rucker for any questions and to sign up.  

  • Summer Mission Trips

    We are so excited to be able to send 2 teams on mission this summer. One group will be serving children and adults in Jamaica. Another group will be caring for orphans in Costa Rica. Please be in prayer for each of these teams. If you are able to contribute monetarily to these trips, it would be greatly appreciated. Please designate your gift to “Mission Trips,” and place it in the offering plate. Thank you!

    If you interested in attending either of these trips, please see Pastor Kevin.


  • Support Summer Youth Camp (June 23-28)

    We are so excited to have 38 campers already signed up to attend ReCharge this summer. What a blessing! Many of us have seen firsthand the life-transforming impact of this camp. So, it is our desire that every youth who wants to attend has the opportunity to do so. If you are able to help our families cover the cost of camp, we welcome donations of any amount. This Christ-focused, week long opportunity is just $295 per camper and includes accommodations and meals. We thank you, in advance, for your prayers and support of all the youth and chaperones who will attend. Questions: see Pastor Tim or Diana Franklin
