Monday Morning Men's Bible Study

A group of men will begin reading through the book of Acts together starting January 9th. We meet each Monday at 6:30am at the big round table near the front of the Bagel Boy on Minnesota Ave. Contact Pastor Dan with any questions.

RightNow Media

Due to an increase in cost, we will not continue our subscription to Right Now Media in 2023. This is a video library that had been available to church members since 2016.  However, we still want to make Bible study resources available to each member and small group. If your group would like to use a resource that we do not have, please contact Pastor Terry so that we can share and promote quality, Biblically-based material among our congregation.

Compassion Childcare

As a church, we have a tradition of taking a special Christmas Eve offering to support Compassion Childcare. Compassion exists to strengthen working poor families. They have a two-prong approach to preaching and teaching the Gospel. First, to the children each day through worship and bible reading, and secondly, to the parents through case management, resource classes, housing programs, and meals. Currently, Compassion has expanded a preschool inside of our church walls which provides Christian teaching daily to preschoolers who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Please consider giving on Christmas Eve to this special organization.

Join us for a fun, family-friendly live nativity on December 28th from 10am-noon!
