  • Read through the bible in 2018

    Bible reading is a significant factor that contributes to our growth in godliness. However, according to research recently conducted by Lifeway Christian Resources, 80% of Christians have never read through the entire Bible for themselves. Many who claim to be people of God’s Word are largely unfamiliar with it.

    In 2018, we’re going to read through the Bible, together, as a church. To help us, we’ll follow a chronological plan developed by George Guthrie in Reader’s Guide to the Bible. Guthrie’s book provides brief commentary for each section of reading, as well as questions at the end of each week that would be beneficial for small group discussion. While the books cost $13-15 online, we’re able to provide it for a discounted price of $10. You can purchase your copy in our church office during the week, as well as on Sunday morning.

  • Women's bible Study

    Fellowship begins around 8:30AM and the bible study will begin at 9:00AM.  Ladies will meet each Wednesday in the old fellowship hall for this bible study.  Books are $18.00.

    The Quest by Beth Moore

    A question is an invitation to vulnerability, to intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator. We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.

    The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation. In this six-week excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him. 

  • Children's choir
