Our forKids Choir/Handbell Choir will be performing THIS Sunday, December 18th! It’s always a sweet time to see the kids of our church worshipping our Lord with such joy!


Our Christmas service will be on Christmas Day, NEXT Sunday at our normal 10:30 time. Reminder that it will be a family style service with families worshipping and celebrating together Christmas morning. We will be giving all of our forKids volunteers a break that day as we want everyone to be able to be a part of the service! It will only be a one hour service also, so you should still be able to make it to your family lunch gatherings on time 🙂


Our men’s Bible Study group, PS-2, meets on Monday nights at the church from 6:30-8:00. They are currently studying through the book of Ecclesiastes. Men are welcome to come any Monday that they can!

Contact Vince Garmon at with any questions!


Our Men’s Retreat will be Jan 25-28 in Florida!

We will start collecting payments for the retreat on Sunday, January 1st. The last day to pay will be Sunday, January 15th. Checks can be made payable to Beth Grider.


NEXT Sunday is also the day to bring your gifts for the Friends Forever Fund! That morning we will be celebrating what God has and is doing through the generous hearts of His people!

Reminder that

  • Goal is to raise $100,000
  • $90,000 will directly pay down the mortgage debt
  • $10,000 will be sent to RIP Debt to pay off an estimated $1 Million dollars of medical debt in our area!
  • Moving forward, 100% of all money donated to the Friends Forever Fund will pay down debt until the mortgage is paid off.
  • A family has pledged a 20% match for every dollar given to the Friends Forever Fund, up to a max of $150,000.

That means that once we reach $150,000 in total giving, they will give $30,000!

Here’s what that means for you:

  • If you can afford to give $100, then your gift turns into $120
  • If you can give $1,000, then your gift becomes $1,200
  • If you can give $10,000, then your gift increases to $12,000.

This is an amazing opportunity for everyone to give generously, and watch the Lord multiply it through the generosity of others.

We are excited to see what God has in store for His Church as you faithfully give to invest in securing Friends Forever!

Chest Of Joash

The Chest of Joash provides an opportunity to give above and beyond the normal tithe. The money from it goes directly to work needed done on our building.

In 2 Chronicles 24 we find Joash repairing the temple and a chest was set outside of it for people to bring a tithe that was used to pay the workers restoring the temple. Verse 10 says, “And all the princes and all the people rejoiced and brought their tax and dropped it into the chest until they had finished.”

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have joyfully donated just as the Israelite officials and people did!

You can give to the Chest of Joash by clicking the button below and selecting “Chest of Joash” in the drop down menu.
