Wednesday Bible Study

Posted on May 03, 2021 in: General News

Wednesday Bible Study
1 Peter — May 12—June 23 at 10:30 a.m. The Book of 1 Peter carries all of the pastoral warmth of an apostle who’d seen just what the world thought of those who followed Jesus and learned to live well despite it. It’s a message of hope in the midst of darkness, encouragement in the midst of exhaustion, and a promise in the midst of this world of struggle.

Turning to Christ (The Gospel of John)
Tuesdays, May 11 - June 22 at 7:30-8:30pm Continuing a study for women of the church, Melissa Penza will lead a study of the Gospel of John.

Posted on June 03, 2020 in: General News

Pastor's Message on Racism
A police officer out of control in Minneapolis . . . senseless killing . . . rioting . . . looting . . . protesting . . . racism. Denouncing all of this is easy. At least it should be.
