And every day in the temple and at home they did not cease to teach and proclaim Jesus as the Messiah. Acts 5:42

Current and Upcoming Events

Your Worship Committee has been listening to you! During Church Council held on March 6th, the vote was unanimous to change the look of the 8:30 traditional worship service. On April 30th, there will be one combined worship service to kick off “The Bridge”. “The Bridge” will have a more casual look and feel. Some of our music leaders within the church are working together to combine music styles of both gospel, traditional and contemporary, so you can look forward to singing many familiar tunes. Our pastors will share the preaching duties of this service often preaching a series on various topics. Rev. Dale Weise will be preaching beginning April 30th. The service will end no later than 9:30 to allow you to get to your Sunday School Classes on time.  The name “The Bridge” was chosen because your Worship Committee feels as if this service will truly be a BRIDGE between a traditional and contemporary style of worship. For those who prefer a totally traditional style of worship, please join your church family at the 10:45 service. If you feel connected and closer to God in a contemporary setting, worship at 11:00 in Celebration Hall at the 11th Hour Service. If you need a BRIDGE between the two styles, join us at 8:30 for “The Bridge”.
While “The Bridge” will be held at 8:30 in the Sanctuary on a regular basis beginning May 7th, for the “kick off” we will all worship together on April 30th at 10:45 in the Sanctuary, followed by a church wide, old fashioned pot luck lunch. Your Worship Committee hopes you will make plans to join us in worship and stay to have lunch and enjoy fellowship together following worship.
