Our mission is the same as Jesus commanded in his Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
Please watch our church newsletter, the bulletin and this website for updates as to when the next confirmation class will begin.
Please join Pastor Sal on Sunday morning for coffee, the Word and good times! Beginning September 18 Pastor Sal will be leading us through the Book of James. James is a very practical kind of book, addressing each of us where we live in the world. As we read through the 5 chapters, we quickly learn that God's Word is given to us, not ultimately that our knowledge might increase but that our lives might be changed. The emphasis in this book is not upon becoming a Christian but rather behaving as Christians.
Pastor Sal is holding a Men's Breakfast Bible Study at a Connie's Cafe, Tuesday at 8 am.
Thursday morning at 9 am Pastor Sal instructs an overview of God's Word from the Lifelight Series.
Please watch the church bulletin, newsletter and this website for dates and times. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Sal at the church office, 989-727-3206.
