  • read through the bible

    We are reading through the Bible together-join us!  Why?  Reading through the Bible is important - you have a clearer understanding of the history of God's people, the love God has for us and you improve your Bible knowledge.  We have brochures with readings available in the office, or you may go to the BibleTogether website to sign up for email reminders.  There is also an app you can download. It has the  readings (or listening - it will read you the passages if you like) questions, maps, videos and more!  Questions?  See Matthew Covington.

  • souper bowl and more!

    On Sunday February 2 we will gather  at 11:30am to share in our annual Souper Bowl luncheon - soup, sandwiches and dessert (by donation, suggest what you would spend on a lunch out).  Following our meal, we will work together to pack 15,000 meals to be distributed to hungry people.  To make our luncheon happen, we need your help!  Sign up to bring soup, or sandwiches or dessert.  To learn more about Rise Against Hunger and the important work we will do that day, click here.  Join us for a delicious meal and plan to stay about 2 hours to help pack meals!  Watch a video about Rise Against Hunger here.
