Summer is coming to a close. Schools are starting back in a couple of weeks. The annual cycle continues. While all seems to be moving along as “normal,” for many people, God has changed their life in this season. Our church has been blessed to see many people reached this summer with the Gospel. Others have been brought “home” and been added to our church family. If this is your first time with us, we want you to know that we are honored by your presence. Church family, let’s welcome all these guests the Lord has sent our way!If you are a guest with us, please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card.We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

Last Week Was Incredible
After the great week at VBS, last Sunday was exciting as we saw the Lord add to our church and to His Forever Family! The LeTourneau family send-off to Uganda was a wonderful demonstration of God’s blessings at the close of the VBS Family service. On Monday evening we saw God do amazing things with a record number from our church family participating in Outreach to continue to minister to and reach the families who took part in Vacation Bible School. We praise God for all He is doing in us, with us, and through us!
16 Verses That Tell The Whole Story Continues
The Bible is a book made up of 66 books written by 49 different men moved by the Holy Spirit over 1500 years, containing many different personal stories, prophecies (many already fulfilled) and historical accounts. But these are all part of ONE story! In our 6 p.m. Family Service on Sunday we continue “16 Verses That Tell The Whole Story,” a study of 16 key verses that stand as turning points in the Bible’s storyline. Children and adults are learning how God’s Word tells a single story about His glory and His grace.
