Hi Friends,

I’m excited for us to get together on the best day of the week!  Our worship service theme is:  A Call to Faith.  Faith is one of those things that can get talked about a lot, but not really understood.  This Sunday we are going to be looking more at what it means to actually have faith, what are the characteristics of faith and how faith is meant to make a difference in the everyday stuff of our lives.

Hope to see you there!

Pastor Jeff

Call to Worship

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The LORD is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.  The LORD upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.  The LORD is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works (Psa 145:13-17 ESV)

Personal Reflection

Sharing the Lord’s Supper  

Responding to God’s word in Song

  1. Give me Faith
  2. Blessed Assurance


For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith- (Eph 3:14-17 ESV)
