    Mother’s Day
    Happy Mother's Day! Today we will take a look at some women from the pages of Scripture, focusing on how they honored God in their lives.  We praise God for moms, and their influence in our lives!  It's our hope that your heart will be encouraged today!

    The Prodigal Son
    Today we celebrate the Lord's Table together...A time to reflect on His mercy, grace, forgiveness, and love.  We will look at one of the most beloved passages in scripture, the story of the prodigal son.  This story resonates deep in our hearts because we all want a father who will welcome us home, no questions asked.  That is how good God's love is!

    People Like You & Me – Week #17
    This morning we begin to take a look at the life of Daniel. Daniel was a young man who was displaced from his homeland, thrown into unfamiliar surroundings, and absorbed into a culture that feared neither him nor the God he worshipped. Despite one's circumstances, the opportunity to honor God exists wherever we are...Daniel illustrates that for you and me.

    The Life of Jesus – His Promise to Return
    For the past few weeks we've been looking at the life of Jesus.  Last week we considered the resurrection appearances of Jesus.  This week we will look at His promise to return and what that means for us.  We are glad you're here today!  Our prayer is that you are encouraged in the Lord while you are here!

    The Life of Jesus – His Appearances After the Resurrection
    This Sunday we continue to look at the life of Jesus, focusing on His appearances after the resurrection.  Our Lord finds ways to encourage His followers so much so that they recommit their lives to following Him.  So, here we are some 2000 years later, still finding ourselves encouraged by Jesus and His gracious words!

    Easter Sunday
    Happy Easter!!  We are glad you've chosen to come celebrate with us!  It's our hope and prayer that God will encourage your heart today and remind you of His faithfulness and how much you are loved.  Resurrection morning is about a God who has power over everything.  And it's also about us...That the focus of God's plan, His sacrifice, and His grace...Was people like you and me!  How good is that?  Let's praise God together!

    Palm Sunday
    Happy Palm Sunday!  
     
    This week we continue to look at the life of Jesus, focusing on His trial and sentencing.  The events leading up to the crucifixion of Christ are stunning! The manner in which He is arrested, tried, and convicted defy logic....But God's ways do not always fit our logic.  As the book of Isaiah so clearly reminds us, "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

    A Person UNLIKE You & Me
    We've been in a series entitled, "People Like You and Me," looking at men and women from the pages of Scripture.  For the next few weeks as we approach Easter, we will look at the person of Jesus...And maybe adjust the series title to, "A Person UNLIKE You and Me: JESUS".  Jesus is the one and only...Savior, Master, Redeemer, Coming King, and Lord of all...

    People Like You & Me – Week #16
    This week we return to our study of "People Like You and Me."  Today we will look at the account of a man named Job.  His story gives us insight into the ancient struggle of suffering, difficulty, and wondering what on earth God is up to.  We praise God for His precious Word that sheds light on all we need to know!
