Electives for December 2nd – January 13th

  • I Thessalonians| David Siegfried | Sanctuary

    After being forced from the city only a few short weeks into his ministry in Thessalonica, Paul had to find alternative means to establish the young believers in their faith.  This letter demonstrates how Paul continued to instruct and encourage the church in his absence, and also provides insights into his missionary and discipleship methods. Through the study of 1Thessalonians we will be encouraged by essential doctrines, we will be reminded of the lifestyle convictions and practices that are to coincide with our faith, and we will be challenged to emulate the Apostle’s commitment and care for other believers

  • What Is Truth? | Ron Reed | Overflow

    From the Garden of Eden to the trial of Jesus before Pilate to present day “fake news” the ageless question continues, “What is truth?” Today even in churches “truth” is debated! Was Adam a real person? Does God now allow same sex relationships? Is the “angry God” of the Old Testament the same as the “loving God” of the New Testament? Can there be one “truth” if even conservative churches disagree on significant doctrinal issues? In a political climate where we can’t believe most of what we hear and can’t trust even what we see in photo-shopped images, how can we know the Truth? In this elective we explore what Francis Schaeffer called “True-Truth” and how this influences how we live.

  • Redeeming Money| Greg Fairbanks | Fellowship Hall

    Redeeming Money, by Paul Tripp, will walk us through a journey showing how to view and interact with money through the lens of grace, love, and hope.  This won’t be a nuts and bolts budgeting class, but rather examining our hearts as we seek to be generous and God-honoring through our financial decisions each and every day.

Worship Choir

Worship Choir is a great opportunity to use your gifts to praise our Lord. The choir rehearses Thursday nights from 6:45pm – 8:15pm in the Sanctuary. Musical selections range from Contemporary Christian to Spirituals to the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Choir season typically runs from Labor Day to Memorial Day and usually involves singing during the Worship Service two or three times per month.

Prayer Meeting

Every Wednesday evening from 6:15 PM to 7:15 PM, a prayer meeting is conducted for adults. Following songtime and a brief devotional from the Bible, prayer is offered in individual, small group, and corporate settings. Each week, a different focus for prayer is emphasized such as local and national political concerns, world missions, various ministries and outreaches of the church, needs of individuals and families within the congregation, or Christians persecuted around the world.
