  • I want to say thank you to everyone that has pulled together to help with the building, praying for the building and giving towards the building. I am excited to have the building open for the Christmas Eve Open House with the lights and heat on.
  • I want to give a shout to Thom B for leading the Christmas lights installation on the church Office building. Thank You.
  • Christmas Eve Candle Light Open House December 24, 6:00-8:00pm on the church property. We are on schedule to have the new Worship building open for those that want to walk through. Be sure to wear some shoes/boot as there may be a little dirt. We are also preparing some light refreshment that will be served on the deck of the Office weather permitting (It will be inside the Office building otherwise). (Please contact Caryl if you would like to help or provide cookies. She is asking for Christmas Cookie donation by Wednesday December 23rd so that they can be individually packaged.)

  • Our December Memory Verse is “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 ESV  If you struggle with memorizing or even consistency, let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  • This Sunday we will be in 1 Kings 22 which brings us to the conclusion of Ahab’s reign as well as our series “Lessons for the Journey.”  Thanks for praying for our time in God’s Word this Sunday and for Pastor Berney and myself as we prepare.
