You are invited to our annual Service of Lessons and Carols on Monday, December 24th, at 6 PM. We’ll have Scripture readings, singing of carols, and a brief devotional message. This is your chance to sing the unexpurgated version of “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” What is that? Join us to find out!
Beginning Sunday, November 18th, Pastor Wright will teach a series through the book of Joshua. This is an Old Testament book of action and intrigue with many exciting characters, but there is only one real hero of the book: Yahweh, the faithful God of the covenant. As Israel’s story unfolds, we see in it our own story. We also learn that Joshua of the Old Covenant pointed forward to the greater Joshua to come: Jesus Christ. Join us each Sunday as 5PM as we follow Israel into the Promised Land and are refreshed in the vision of our great covenant God.
Our men will begin a new study on Saturday, October 6, 7:30 – 9 AM. It is a video-based discussion series entitled, Authentic Manhood: A Man and His Traps. Topics to be addressed include idols, empty promises, control, significance & comfort, and more. Free study guides will be distributed at the meeting. Plan to join us the first Saturday each month for some good food, fellowship, and study together.

After an extended holiday hiatus, our Sunday evening services will resume on January 21st. Join us at 5 PM each Lord’s Day for worship with the Lord’s people.
Due to inclement weather with icy conditions, all services for Sunday, January 14th, are canceled. We encourage everyone to engage in personal or household worship on this Lord’s Day, perhaps listening to a past sermon on this web-site and spending some time in praise and prayer.
We will have a Service of Lessons and Carols Celebrating the Incarnation on Sunday, December 24th, at 5 PM. Please plan to join us for this time of worship and celebration of the birth of our Savior!
In preparation for the celebration of Christ’s incarnation, Pastor Wright will preach on the four “Nativity Hymns” in the Gospel of Luke. These passages have often been set to music and have become known by Latin titles: Magnificat (Mary’s song in Luke 1.46-56), Benedictus (Zacharias’s prophecy in Luke 1.67-79), Gloria (Angels’ praise in Luke 2.14), and Nunc Dimittis (Simeon’s song in Luke 2.29-32).
Join us on Sunday mornings as we worship and explore together these rich passages from God’s Word.
