New Series in October: The Good Work

Each one of us has a good work to do. We may not see it yet, but it’s often right there in front of our eyes. For Nehemiah, it was a crumbled wall. For you, it could be an injustice in the world, or a need you see what no one else does. During this series, we will learn how Nehemiah responded to his own calling and learn how we can change our own world just by leaning into the unique calling that God has put in front of each of us.

October 6: When You Can’t Take It Anymore

October 13: Do the Work. Make a Difference

October 20: Standing Strong in the Face of Opposition

New Women’s Bible Study beginning in October 2019

A Women’s Bible Study is coming in October. Our study will be on Christine Caine’s book, Unashamed. In this 5-session DVD Study, Unashamed, Christine Caine helps readers find freedom from believing they are fundamentally flawed and unworthy of acceptance and prepares them to step into their future – confident, dearly loved, created for a divine purpose.

We will start on Wednesday, October 9th at 1:30pm – 3:30pm. It is a five week study. Books are $10 and study guides are $6. Please mark your communicator card that you would like a book or study guide or both. Please see Kim Teeter or drop by the church office with your payment.

Sermon Series: Who Do You Think You Are?

Who Do You Think you Are?

How do you see yourself? A masterpiece or a mess? Survivor or struggler? Advocate or critic? It’s an important question that many of us probably get wrong, or at least under state. Getting the right perspective on how God sees you might give you a new view of yourself.

Join us in September for this new series and let’s grab hold of who God says we are.

Worship and Potluck in the Park

Join us on Sunday, August 18th for a time of great worship, fellowship, fun and food. All activities will be held at Phillips Park starting at 10am.

Everyone is encouraged to bring a camp chair, and this is a traditional potluck so bring a main dish and a side that is big enough for your family. The church will provide water, cups, plates, and eating utensils.

Questions, please contact the church office.

Join us Every Sunday

You’re welcome to join us every Sunday at:

8:00  Prayer Time (in the Library in the main church building)

8:30  Sunday School for all Ages (Classes listed under the “Our Ministries’ pages shown above, or check the Sunday School list in Church bulletin)

9:45  Worship Celebration (in the Sanctuary in the main church building)

Love and Respect Study

What is Love and Respect?

We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts unlovingly when feeling disrespected, and a wife reacts disrespectfully when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people the question, “When you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected?” 83% of the men said “disrespected” and 72% of the women said “unloved.” Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue!

Join us for this 10-week study on Wednesday nights starting June 5th from 6-7:30pm. It will be a great time together in study, discussion and fellowship. You haven’t been married too little or too long to benefit from this material. Childcare is provided.

Cost is only $10 for a workbook, but we ask that you sign up in the church office by phone or sign up below by May 19th to make sure that we have enough resources.
