We would like to briefly share what we have come to understand as being truly important in our church.
This is a sense of what I believe is of utmost importance to the family life of our church.

The day officially begins with prayer.
The truth that God invites His people to come to Him with our thanksgiving & praise as well as our needs is a privilege we cherish.
Faith in God and love for one another compel us to pray.
A vital part of our growth in God’s Word is met in Sunday School.
Our children (3 years old through 5th grade) study the Bible in a systematic way so that they cover the sweeping picture of God’s eternal plan of salvation from one cover of the Bible to the other.
The rest of us meet in the Celebration Café for an always inspiring time digging deeply into the treasure of God’s Word.
We seek to know Jesus, to experience personal transformation, and the ability to communicate the Gospel to everyone who asks us for the hope that we have.
"For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light."
- Psalm 36:9
Songs of praise & worship and reading God’s Word together focuses our attention on Jesus and prepares us to hear God’s Word.
Prayer is always offered for the needs of the people in our church, our loved ones who are not, and for God’s will to be accomplished in our world.
Pastor Mike considers biblical preaching a sacred trust.
Through prayer, study, and reliance upon the Spirit of God, he brings a message that points us to the glory of Christ.
We believe that when God’s Word is faithfully proclaimed, God’s voice is truly heard.
Sunday evenings are reserved for special gatherings.
A men’s group meets once per month for conversation around the Word of God.
The women do this also one Sunday evening a month.
Some Sundays parents meet to learn and be encouraged in their greatest mission before them—to lead their children to Christ!
Some Sundays find us helping people in need or planning special events that create great memories for the whole church family.
It’s a time to recharge and reconnect with one another and to talk about the Sunday message together.
In our highly spiritualized culture, it’s easy to absorb wrong ideas about God—and then pass those wrong ideas or assumptions to our children and to others. Wrong ideas about God make the Bible confusing and hinders our spiritual growth.
We desire to be a people who "worship God in spirit and in truth."
True worship always combines heart and head, emotion and thought, affection and reflection because truth without emotion produces dead orthodoxy and a church full of artificial admirers; and emotion without truth produces empty excitement and cultivates people who refuse the discipline of rigorous faith-building thought.
"Dinner & a Bible" is the place where we study the Bible in an interactive way.
