Church Cleaning

Make plans to come to the Church-wide work day and cleaning party Saturday, January 31, starting at 9:00 a.m.



This will be based upon Stormie Omartian’s book, The Power of Praying for your Adult Children. Please call or text Jenn Marsh if interested at 606-8358. This group will be open to anyone, no matter their church affiliation. We know the world today is a much different place than when we grew up and we need wisdom to know how to intercede in prayer for our children. As Hannah prayed in I Sam. 1:27, “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.”  Come join us!

Start the New Year Right

Get your 2015 off to a right start by bringing all your family to worship on Sunday, January 25 at 10:25 AM. (Come Early!) Pastor Tim will bring a message entitled, “Signs that Jesus is Coming Back Soon, Part 3”. Invite your friends and family members to join us.



On the Mount of Olives on the Tuesday before Jesus was crucified, his disciples asked him these questions: When will these things be? When will Jerusalem and the temple be destroyed? What will be the sign of your coming? What event will signal your return? What will be the sign of the end of the age? Jesus responded by telling them about the coming destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, and the Glorious Appearing. (Matthew 24:1-44, Luke 21:5-36, Mark 13:3-37) Jesus said that the signs would be like birth pangs. (Matthew 4-14, Mark 13:5-13, Luke 21:7-19.) Natural disasters and societal upheavals will increase in severity and intensity as the end approaches: wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilences, earthquakes in diverse places. Many of the SIGNS that the Bible says will signal the Second Coming have only occurred recently, and many of these are like birth pains, increasing in severity and intensity. On Sunday Pastor Tim will continue his message about these birth pains, the SIGNS of the coming again soon of Christ.
