Thank you for your faithful and generous giving.
Because of your generosity, we have been able to give to the Sharing Place Food Bank, FSA – relief work in the Afar, as well as to a network of churches that help with benevolence requests. Currently, because of government funding (to individuals and food banks), requests for financial assistance is down.

Here is an update on giving and expenses through May 24.
You can find all the ways you can give here.


Father God, may we know you creating victory out of our anxieties,
Jesus, we thank you for suffering at the core of our human brokenness,
Holy Spirit, meet us today with the power and compassion of resurrection to give us a peace beyond our understanding

Address The Mess

It’s a common misconception that the Christian life is all about avoiding messes and staying out of trouble. But it turns out that your messes and the messy people you meet along the way may actually be your greatest opportunity to know God. In this 4-part series, Andy Stanley reminds us that following Jesus isn’t about avoiding something; it’s about becoming something.

  • We are offering this on Wednesday @1:3opm – beginning May 27 – facilitated by Judith Coates
  • & Wednesday’s @ 8:00pm – beginning June 3 – facilitated by pastor Mike

In The Meantime

What do you do when there’s no way forward and there’s no way out?
In this study, we will tackle that question.

  • Wednesday’s @ 8:00pm – beginning June 3 – facilitated by pastor Brent

Sunday, 24 May


We are glad you are here…
We trust and pray that as you read and listen that you will be blessed.
Take a few minutes

  • to be still
  • to invite the Lord’s presence to be very real to you, over the next little while
  • to prepare your heart to listen and receive

Read Psalm 16 as you enter into worship.
