New Website

Welcome to our new website. We are looking to reach those in the community that want to join a faith based community that loves God and each other as Jesus Christ taught us. Throughout this website, we will have information about our services, ministries, children's programs and events.


Mothers have eyes on the backs of our heads.
Over all our thoughts there hangs a moon.
The love of our creator sends a light
Heavenward, to brood upon our night,
Essence of love distilled into a tune,
Rising with a kiss above our beds.


Pentecost commemorates when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be with the disciples (Acts 2). With the Holy Spirit among the disciples, the church was born.

“LITTLE SEEDS” by Mary Ann Sundby

Raindrops tumble to the ground ‘cause God directs them to come down,

Little seeds sprout from the ground ‘cause God directs them up, not down.

Tender roots sink in the ground ‘cause God directs them to go down.

Pretty flowers will be found Where raindrops tumbled to the ground.


A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible – Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task – but he just couldn’t remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.

On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was very nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, “The Lord is my Shepherd, and that’s all I need to know.


Did you know that July and August are now more popular wedding months than June? During all these ceremonies, wedding rings play a prominent role. An almost universal tradition dating back millennia, rings in general and wedding rings in particular have various meanings. Glimpsing the ring on one’s finger, one is prompted anew to live out the vows made years ago, to love and be faithful to one’s spouse in ways big and small.

GRANDPA'S HANDS (received from Martha via e-mail)

Grandpa, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. He didn't move, just sat with his head down staring at his hands. When I sat down beside him he didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat, I wondered if he was OK. Finally, not really wanting to disturb him but wanting to check on him at the same time, I asked him if he was OK.

He raised his head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking," he said in a clear strong voice.
