During the month of January 2019, we will be involved in a series entitled “Misquoted.” During this month-long sermon series we will investigate four popular sayings that are often attributed to the Bible. The only problem is, you won’t find them in there!
The words we speak say a lot about who we are. So it’s frustrating when someone takes our words and twists them, because it leads people to believe things about us that aren’t true. Likewise, when God is misquoted, it causes people to believe God is someone He is not.
This series challenges us all to draw near to God, because the closer we are to someone, the more likely we will know their voice.
All sermons may be listened to here, on the sermon page or on our

Join us on Sunday, July 1st for God and Country Sunday as we take over the city park and worship together with brothers and sisters in Christ from throughout Baker City. All are welcome. Service starts at 10am and is completely free. Bring a friend, something cool to drink while we worship together, and a lawn chair to sit in.
Exile can be a frightening prospect.Like the Israelites in Babylon, Christians today may feel they are in unfamiliar territory, surrounded by a culture with customs and practices foreign to their faith. In these times of dislocation and powerlessness, God wants to help his people experience anew the possibilities of covenantal faithfulness. In Embracing Exile, T. Scott Daniels invites the church to embrace this modern time of ’exile’ and to seize this unique opportunity to be a blessing to the culture around us.
Join us during June and July for this series called “Embracing Exile”. Pastor Troy Teeter will be leading us through this series and further discussion on Wednesday evenings. You can purchase the book for further study and thought for $7 through the church office, or on the Amazon Kindle ($9.99).
Join us for a great time of fellowship and diving into God’s word. We meet every Wednesday from 1:30p-3:30p in the Fellowship Hall On June 6th we will begin a new series entitled Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin:
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? The Sermon on the Mount articulates what the life of a Christ follower should look like, asking us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? In this 9-session study, examine the words of Jesus in-depth as He challenges us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification.
Have questions? Feel free to contact the church office.
