May Sounds

Here is your May Sounds! It’s pollen season! (I’m sure you don’t need reminding since you may have noticed by now the thick yellow/green coating on the cars outside.) Well my friends, this means Spring is in full effect; and while the pollen doesn’t serve those who have bad allergies, boy is it a sign that our days ahead will be warmer, brighter, more green, and filled with color from all the beautiful plants in bloom. While this is a joy filled season for…

April Sounds

Here is your April Sounds! Do you believe in miracles? Most of us might answer, “why yes, anything is possible if it is God’s will!” Others might be more skeptical, especially in today’s world, when everything seems to be skewed, or distorted in some way. And yet today, on this Easter morning, we set down our glasses stained by disbelief and skepticism, and we just sit in awe of the miracle of the resurrection. No, we REJOICE in awe! We fully rest…

March Sounds

Here is your March Sounds! It’s March and can you believe it? We are now a year into this pandemic, and I am sure you don’t need the reminder, but it was just the “other day” I came here to be interviewed… meaning last March. No way did we think this would last a year; masks and social distancing, and surely our plans would resume to “normal” quickly. Well, once again, we are reminded we are not in control, and here…

Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch 26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. 27 And he rose and went.

APRIL 26, 2021 IN AND OUT: IN Fellowship

16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people…

Luke 25:13-35 On the Road to Emmaus 13 That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, 14 and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. 15 While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. 17 And he said to them, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad. 18 Then one…

John 20:19-31 19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on…

Sunday Worship Services

Whether it is through music, prayer, or preaching, God’s word is at the center of all of our gatherings. Our services include a time of prayer, preaching, the Lord’s Supper, and giving, about 60 minutes long.
