  • Tonight    Men’s Group meets at 6:30pm at the church. All men are invited this group has many discussions about the role and challenges Christian men all share.
  • Wednesday Choir rehearsal at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary all are invited to come and listen.
  • Sunday Worship 10:30am 

Fill your prayer bowls that God keeps in heaven!  Praying is simply calling on God to act in some fashion, to enter into our world and our circumstances. We pray in faith since we cannot see God.

The definition of Faith in Hebrews 11:1, Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” A perfect example of faith is when I plant flower bulbs in the fall, knowing that in due time the bulbs I have planted will emerge into something beautiful even though when I am planting them the cold is coming and the summer life in all the plants is dying. When I plant my bulbs there is no indication that there is life that will emerge. But I have confidence in what I am hoping for even though there is nothing that I can see at the time.  Therefore when I pray, I think about the bulbs I plant in the fall, they come to life and bloom in the spring, as will the prayers I am sending to God. Continue to pray for God is receiving our prayers and knows exactly what needs to happen and when. Sometimes the best prayer is simply asking God to enter into a situation and let Him decide what needs to happen.  Faith!
