September 5th Update
On Sunday morning we will be looking at a message about "The Successful Life." There are many views of what success means. We are going to look at two simple points from the Bible that attempt to state what True Success is in Life.
August 29th Update
This morning will be the last message in the 2 Timothy series. It marks Paul's last words of encouragement to Timothy and the Church of Jesus Christ as a whole before his death. In these words Paul gives Timothy and us encouragements to keep focused even when many want to surround themselves with preachers who tickle their ears with messages that are little more than fables.
August 22nd Update
The Sunday after Labor Day we are launching a special series – True Spirituality. The goal is to learn how God truly thinks and how to be truly pleasing and fruitful to God and for God. We will be focusing on the verse,"that no flesh should glory in His presence." 1 Corinthians 1:29. I trust you will memorize that verse and meditate on it in its context in preparation for that series.
August 15th Update
In the last message from 2 Timothy on the perilous times of the last days, we ask how to escape being deceived like many "gullible women" who will be easy prey for people who creep into their houses and take them captive. In what sense will they be allowed into the house? The captivity will not be physical so much as emotional and mental. How can we identify and avoid those who are agents for Satan who will use their influence to destroy the discernment of people who ought to know better.
August 8th Update
VBS is an exciting week. I really appreciate the creativity and willingness to think outside the box (buildings) to make it work this year. The pavilion has been turned into a ship. The soccer field has been turned into areas for each class. God has blessed our church with enthusiasm and creativity, and I trust this week will be memorable in a good way for everyone.
August 1st Update
Last Sunday evening I asked Eli to do a message on marriage and family. It was so helpful that I asked him to preach it on Sunday morning and then continue the discussion on the Sunday evening Zoom. I know that it will be very helpful to our church for every person since the broader applications are for all relationships.
July 25th Update
We are excited to have our missionary Brian Bollon and his family with us for both services tomorrow. Our church has supported Brian and his family as missionaries to Taiwan for a number of years, and they are doing a great job ministering there.
Paul told Timothy that in the latter days "perilous times would come." We are living in the very times Paul was talking about. In the morning message we will focus on three characteristics of the last days – the way people speak and the disintegration of the home which results in children disobeying parents. The results of disintegrating families are clearly seen in our society. We will look at the Biblical solution to this problem.

We hope you can connect with us this week!
July 4th Update
2 Timothy 3:1 says that in the last days "perilous times will come," and Paul then lists 20 characteristics of the these fierce, harsh, and violent times. The Bible gives truth that can help us find God's help in the midst of the dangerous and unsettling times in which we find ourselves and times which will become worse.
