Children Sunday School


Children Meet in the Café Area for Sunday School Opening!

Today in Sunday School, we study the account “Jesus Walks on Water.” Jesus was gracious to Peter when he feared drowning. Jesus is gracious to us and is ready to catch us as we sink in sin and unbelief; His hand is always strong to save us. Consider asking, “How did Jesus rescue Peter? How does Jesus rescue us

Adult Summer Sunday School

Summer is almost upon us and with it a new opportunity to study the Word of God. All adults are invited to meet in the Fellowship Hall with Pastor Ray to learn the “Stuff they didn’t teach me in Sunday School about Genesis.” We’ve all heard the Genesis stories before – Adam and Eve, the fall into sin, God’s promise to Abraham, Jacob’s ladder, the fall and rise of Joseph…. This study reveals the seldom heard back-story behind the popular accounts we learned as kids. For more information contact Family Life Minister Curtis or Pastor Ra

Music influences us in setting tone and mood. The organ is an instrument with a broad range of musical capabilities, capabilities that we are losing in the current organ for it is long overdue for replacement.
