Find a person today and encourage them, whether they are in Christ or not. We are to be encouragers to all whom we meet. There is already enough discouragement in this world, so be a glass-half-full person and not glass-half-empty. In fact, just be thankful you even have a glass!          (by Jack Wellman)

1 Thessalonians 5:11      “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”

God’s priority is your ​heart.

Nursery Workers

If you would like to help in the nursery during the Morning Worship Service, please contact Sheree Richins, Deanna Kartchner or Dawna McCauley.

Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for a quicker, easier form of communication. Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin. DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, Dialmycalls.com will be used. If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.

The highest form of prayer comes from the depths of a humble heart.
