It’s Sunday Morning and we can’t go to church during this pandemic, but here are some ways we can still worship on this Sabbath Day.


Pastor’s Ponderings: Regardless of the Storm, Look for the Rainbow

We are currently enduring the “storm” of a pandemic, but throughout life we endure many different types of storms. But God continues to send rainbows. In this devotional, Pastor Jim reminds us that God is present regardless of the “storm” which we may be facing. There is hope. There is promise.


Pastor’s Ponderings: Challenged but Not Overcome!

Julian of Norwich wrote that “God never said that we would not be assailed. But He did say that we would overcome. ” During all of the trials of this pandemic, how can we claim Jesus’ victory of “Overcoming the World”?


Pastor’s Ponderings: Lifted from the Pit!

Feeling like you’re standing on the edge of an abyss, just trying to hang on and keep your footing? Or maybe you feel like you’ve already fallen down into the depths. In the scriptures, God promises over and over that He will rescue us from our “pits”. He is always with us.

Pastor’s Ponderings: Forgive with God’s Forgiveness

We’re commanded to forgive, just as our infinite God has done. But what if we don’t have any forgiveness to give? If we can’t give our own forgiveness, let God empower you to extend His forgiveness.


Why Are We Here?…

(Click each Know,Grow, Go item to learn more about our purpose)…

Why are we here?

Our beliefs about God drive our actions as we seek to Know, Grow, and Go. 
Click on each aspect of Know, Grow, and Go to learn more about our purpose…

KNOW God through His Creation...

We Believe that creation is not an accident.  That the God of the universe created us and sustains us.  There are no coincidences; God is in the details.

… And so we worship His amazing power and share every day “Godprints” within our conversations

KNOW God through His Word...

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and contains the truth we need in order to know Him better.


And so we study and ponder the Word and seek to apply it to our lives.

GROW through Community...

We believe that humanity is sinful and inclined to ignore God.  Left on our own, we would gradually drift away from God. 

… And so we seek to grow in grace through prayer and Christian community.

GROW in Worship...

We believe that Jesus is the divine Son of God; fully God and fully man.  That He lived among mankind and died on a cross to pay for our sins.

... And so we embrace God’s unmerited gift of salvation through praise and worship.  We grow into His likeness as we shift our attention from ourselves and instead focus on God.   

GO in Service...

We believe that one day Jesus will return to rule over God’s creation.  And until that day, He has called us to be His hands and feet in the world.

.. And so we go into our community and beyond to share His love through mission and service by feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and clothing the naked.

GO with The Gospel

We believe that Jesus’ death on a cross fulfilled God’s eternal plan to cancel sin and reunite the human race to God.

… And so we strive to witness our faith in God’s forgiveness.  We spread the Good News that our Creator loves us and that He wants to be involved in our day to day lives.
