Love Bankrupty Part 4 this weekend! The new series coming in March is called Proof Of Life. Before a ransom is paid the captors must give proof of life. What does God’s word say is the “proof/evidence” that we are alive in Christ?

You may have noticed the parsonage (house next to the church) has been torn down. We are excited about this forward step in reaching some of our goals for our church property. For years we've been discussing the demolition of that building and the addition of new ministry facilities. Throughout this coming year we will be continuing to make improvements on our existing facility and cast vision for our upcoming building project. Thank you for your faithful prayer, involvement, and financial support.

That's all for now! God bless!
