The Book of Judges is the continuing story of a God on a mission to gather a community of worshippers for Himself in the midst of a corrupt, evil and rebellious world. This overarching theme of “everyone did what was right in their own eyes,” not only sets the tone of the culture, but describes the overarching spiritual condition of God's covenant. As we examine this book and its so-called "heroes," we must all fight the temptation to “judge” the judges, because the truth is, we are no different. We are equally unfaithful and fully convinced of our own “rightness”. In truth, when we read about the ever–rebellious Israel with its misguided leaders, we see ancient versions of our own present-day idolatry–individual and corporate. And so this story is ultimately about how God's grace pierces through the darkest of times.

So join us starting on Sunday, May 20th at 11:00am, as we go through this incredible book.

The Bible is a big book. Hundreds of characters and thousands of ideas parade across its pages from beginning to end. From the uninitiated to the very seasoned, readers of the Bible will always find something new to learn in The Good Book.

Over the course of 8 sessions, pastors Deron Spoo and Kyle Idleman will visit the most salient themes about God in the Bible. With the goal of providing a sketch of each idea, each session will break down the concept into two smaller sections to unpack the meat behind the theme. At the center of the series stands God, and each theme will focus on who He is in relationship to His created order.

 

Due to summer traveling and vacations, our Church Board has approved to take a break from serving Sunday lunch for months of June and July. This will allow our kitchen ministry to rest. The Sunday lunch will resume again in August. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

 

 

 

 

Beginning, June 17, we will be devoting ourselves to prayer during our Sunday school time at 9:45am for the summer months. This is a great opportunity for us to take time to pray together for our church, our leaders, our members and for one another. We hope that you'll join us as we commit to seeking the Lord in prayer this summer.

 

 

 

 

The goal of our Community Groups is to create a predictable small group environment where participants experience authentic community and spiritual growth. We believe that true and sustained life change happens best in the context of a structured relationship. Out of rows and into circles. And the best expression of these relationships is found in the small group ministry.

Community Groups are where real life and real issues are discussed and shared. It’s a safe environment where we celebrate the successes and good times of life, as well as comfort one another during the tough and disappointing times. It’s also a place to be encouraged, equipped, and challenged to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. We are planning to launch new Community Groups in September 2016.
