Embrace the Word in 2019

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me. (John 5:39 ESV)

In 2019 our congregation will celebrate our 10th anniversary a milestone that draws us back to our foundation as a church which holds God's Word at its core. We are offering two ways to engage the Bible in 2019. You can engage with daily readings that will take you through the Bible in one year or read the focused readings each week to prepare for Bible class at 8:30 a.m. and worship at 9:30 as we walk through the Bible one book each week. Embrace God's Word with us in 2019 as we hear of God's activity for all creation revealed to us in the Scriptures.
