Wednesday Prayer Lunch

Our Wednesday Prayer Lunch has been well attended the month of October and it has been decided that the weekly event will continue.


Sunday Evening Activities

Sunday evening activities have started back up.  Sunday Evening Worship Service is at 5 pm in the sanctuary.  Youth Group is at 5 pm in the youth basement.  Kid's Night is at 5 pm in the fellowship hall.  There also is a nursery for the Sunday evening worship hour every week. 


Kid's Night is our Sunday evening ministry for our children from age 3 to 5th grade.  It is at the same time as our evening worship and youth group because we want your entire family to be engaged in the worship of God on Sunday evening.  In Kid's Night, your children learn to memorize Scripture, they are taught i separate classes the stories of the Bible and the Children's Catechism.  They learn songs that they will sing in front of the church and the end with playing outside.  It is a time for us to teach our children God's Word and for them to have fun as they do it.


If you or your children have not been to our Sunday evening activities, we encourage you to make it a part of your Sunday.  There is not better way to prepare for the week than for our family to spend the Lord's Day in His house with His people.  We look forward to beginning our Sunday evening schedule again!


New Sunday School Class

We will be starting a new Sunday School class on Sunday, August 22.  It is a class for college students and adults to age 25.  It will be taught by Adrian Amabile and they will be studying the Sermon on the Mount.  They will meet in the conference room across from the choir room.
