Bible Study

  • Sunday Bible Class Please join us in our continuous study of, “The Life of Abraham”.  Abraham’s life was filled with highs and lows. At times Abraham wondered how God would fulfill his promises. God did not disappoint Abraham. God constantly repeated those promises to Abraham to strengthen his faith. Even though Abraham did not see fulfillment of all those promises during his life, his faith held to God’s Word. Come and join us for this opportunity to grow in our faith together. Families are welcome to attend!

Quarterly Voters Meeting will be held in the church basement on July 24, 2022 at 11:15am.  All male members, age 18 and older, are encouraged to participate and all members of the congregation are invited to attend.
