It’s Palm Sunday – Celebrate the Triumphal Arrival of Christ!

This Sunday marks the beginning of the holiest week of the year for followers of Jesus. During this week, we remember his suffering, crucifixion, and resurrection. The week begins with Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, where people greet Him as a hero and the fulfillment of prophecy. However, things change quickly, leading to his death on Friday and Resurrection on Sunday. We can learn powerful lessons from this journey, and we invite you to join us as we discuss “The Unexpected Jesus.” We also hope you’ll join us for our Holy Week services as we pay tribute to what Jesus has done for us. 

We’ll be live on Facebook Sunday at 11:00, or you can watch any time on Facebook or YouTube.

Do you want to make a difference? – Learn how

Do you want to make a difference? It seems that everywhere we turn, there are challenges. Everyone has a part to play in God’s plan. The challenging part is to determine what that role is. The key to finding it is to listen to God’s call. This morning we’re going to be talking about understanding the call of God. It rarely looks like we expect, and it always demands that we step out of our comfort zone. However, following God is always worth it. Join us this morning for “Called.”

Looking for Something – Look to Jesus – Worship March 10

There are times we know we need something without knowing what we need. It’s hard to find something you can’t name. Today, we encounter someone in that situation. Nicodemus comes to Jesus looking for something. He’s not sure what it is, but Jesus does. Have you tried coming to Jesus for that need in your life? He won’t fail you because He loves you more than you know. Join us this morning as we explore “For God So Loved the World.”

We’ll be live on Facebook Sunday at 11:00, or you can watch any time on Facebook or YouTube.

Worship with us today – March 3

Are you good at managing your anger? Some people constantly lose their temper, causing emotional and physical harm to others. Fortunately, Jesus manages His anger well. That’s why the story of Him driving out the money changers in the temple is so powerful. What are they doing that made Jesus so angry? Once you understand the problem, you can work to make sure it doesn’t happen in your walk with Him. Join us this morning for Turning the Tables.

We’ll be live on Facebook Sunday at 11:00, or you can watch any time on Facebook or YouTube. 

Here is some information to help you participate if you’re joining us online:

Worship with us today – February 25

A lot of life turns out to be harder than we think. But when we face these difficulties, how will we respond? Everyone who follows Jesus inevitably discovers something about following Him that is different and more difficult than expected. Will we turn away? It’s curious how we can learn the importance of resilience in other areas of life, yet struggle to apply it to our faith journey. Jesus is worth the effort. This week we’ll discover that even Jesus’ first disciples had to learn this lesson. What they discovered will help us, too. 

We’ll be live on Facebook Sunday at 11:00, or you can watch any time on Facebook or YouTube. 

Here is some information to help you participate if you’re joining us online:

  • The response to our interactive opening prayer is, “The promise rests on grace.”
  • The songs are “My Hope Is Built” and “Lord of the Dance.” Look up the words online, and you can sing along.
  •  The Bible readings are Mark 8:31-38.
  • Share a prayer request in the comments. It can be praise for God doing something good in your life or a challenge where you hope to see God move in a particular way. Please let us know how God is moving in your life.

Join Us for Ash Wednesday Services

Join us TONIGHT at 7:30 for Ash Wednesday Service.

The holy season of Lent is upon us. Lent represents the forty days of preparation between now and the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. Historically, people who were preparing to be baptized went through lessons during the Lenten season. Now, people also use it as a time of personal sacrifice and learning so that they might live and love more like Jesus.  Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of this special season. The imposition of the ashes reminds us of our mortality and our need for God’s help as we enter the holy time. Join us to learn more about this season and explore your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Having trouble seeing God in your life?

Are you a grounded person who appreciates facts and realism? While these are admirable qualities, it can be challenging to remain open to the movements of God if we limit ourselves to earthly perspectives. God’s ways are beyond human understanding. Today, we’re exploring how to broaden our minds to the movements of God that make us say, “Now I See.”
