Congratulations to Alex Gore who was baptized into Christ last Sunday, February 11.  We rejoice with Alex and her family.
Thank You
I would like to thank everyone for the prayers and words of encouragement that helped me through a difficult time. The beautiful card from the Mary Martha Class made my day.  Thank you, Pamela Hendrickson

Good morning and welcome to our worship service. If you are a guest with us this morning we welcome you and invite you to join in with us as we honor our Creator and Savior.

  • Today we will celebrate marriage with our PA couples who are celebrating anniversaries that are a multiple of 5. We have a wide range—from 5 to 65 years. We ask for a picture from their wedding day or the time of their wedding and then a recent picture. I love to see those old pictures and am confident that each spouse still sees one another as that younger version. Give a hug, handshake, or pat on the back to those participating.
  • Speaking of marriage, we have a full house for our Marriage Get-a-way next week. Those attending will love Randy and Kerrianne Roper. They both have such great hearts for the Lord and his church. Praying for an enriching time for all of you.
  • You may have noticed a new 15 passenger transit van roaming around our property. Last year we sold our bigger bus and have just replaced it with this new vehicle that we are hoping will serve us for years to come.
  • What are you doing Sunday mornings at 9 AM? Why not join us for our adult Bible Class in room D? We have good discussion as we open up the word of God for direction and encouragement.
  • What are you doing Wednesday nights? Why not come out for our PAWS meal and hang around for more time in God’s word and some great spiritual fellowship? It really is a wonderful time to reconnect with people and get that spiritual boost we all need in the middle of a busy week.
  • A big thanks to all of you who organize our PAWS meals! It’s a lot of work feeding 100+ people and we are grateful.
  • Last Sunday our youth hosted an amazing Sweetheart Banquet for our 60+ crowd. We are blessed with a great youth ministry and a great facility to  celebrate in. Can you believe the Ark is turning 14  years old this year? What did we do without it?
  • Glad you are here!
