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.

God is searching for you-and won’t give up until you’ve been found.
That’s the central message at the heart of this four-week sermon series. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, we sometimes run away from God. We hide behind our excuses and our sins. We create distance in that relationship.
Yet God doesn’t give up. God passionately pursues us, seeking a restored and whole relationship with us.
Join us each Sunday, starting April 28th, for another aspect of God’s pursuit of you and me.
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.

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).
