Love God.........Serve Others
Love God.........Serve Others
We are a church family committed to sharing the love of God through Jesus. Sunday worship times are 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Our 9:00 AM Jubilee service is a blend of contemporary Christian music, prayer and time in the Bible. Our 11:00 AM Traditional service is a blend of great church music, a celebration of our heritage and time in the Bible.
We are commissioned by God to serve others as we help meet the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors and community.
We will grow in our faith and trust in God through small groups of study, prayer and encouragement.
The life of Jesus as defined by the Gospels is our guide for right living, moral decisions, and compassion for others.
We will walk alongside one another celebrating life’s joys and supporting each other in its sorrows so that we may trust one another and be strengthened as the body of Christ.
It's time to begin our support for the pantry again. This month, it's back to the basics. The pantry needs Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Pork and Beans, Pineapple chunks, Chicken and Tuna Helper, and Sugar in 2# bags. Thank you for your giving spirit.

Our church family is joining with many others in acknowledging our need to love and care for each other even more during these challenging times. As a result, the Church Council and Pastor Mark are making changes to our church activities through the month of April. For the present time there will be one service at 11:00 AM. Because of the current CDC “10 person” restriction, these service will not be open to the public. The annual conference has asked all churches to record the number of online participants each week so if you watch, please call or email the church office.

Pastor Mark and the Church Council
Three ideas for staying connected with each other and our community:
1. “6:60 Prayer”
Each day, at 6:00 AM and/or 6:00 PM, you are invited to spend at least 60 seconds in prayer for our country, first responders, the ill, and the neighborhood you live in. Prayer makes a difference and binds us together as one family.
2. “Hump Day Hellos”
Make at least one phone call to a neighbor, shut-in, or friend to check in on them and stay connected. The call(s) can be done any time during “Hump Day”, better known as Wednesday.
3. “A Candle in the Window”
We encourage everyone to put an electric candle in one window in your house. Put it in a window where others can see it. Keep the candle glowing until we have journeyed through the current virus outbreak and its challenges. A candle in your window will tell all who see it that you are offering your encouragement and God’s hope; knowing we are all in this together.
