Communion

We celebrate the Sacrament of Communion-the Lord’s Supper-in worship on the 1st Sunday of each month. In the Sacrament of Communion, we remember Christ’s death until He comes again. (1 Corinthians 11:26)
 
Communion is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, regardless of denominational affiliation or background. According to Scripture, we believe that the elements of Communion are symbolic; the bread represents Jesus’ body, broken for the sins of the world; the cup represents God’s new covenant with His people in Jesus’ blood, shed for the sins of the world. (Matt 26:26-30, Mark 14:22-25, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25)
The Sacrament of Communion is a joyful feast in which we embrace the hope of eternal life through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God offers freely to all who believe.

Sunday School with

Sharon Chester

Starting Sunday April 24th, Sharon Chester will begin a twelve week Bible study entitled “Acts” in Class Room A beginning at 9:00am.
 
The book of Acts is a carefully-recorded history of the explosive spread of the gospel and the rapid growth of the church after Christ’s ascension. In one of the most tumultuous, violent and dramatic books in the Bible, Acts starts with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, without which the young church could never have survived the unleashing of rage and prejudice towards these radical followers of “The Way”. Acts shows how, even in the midst of persecution and opposition, the early believers were able to rely on God’s spirit for direction and divine authority to preach the gospel to all nations.
 
Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
 
 

Sunday School with

Sandy Wylie

Beginning Sunday February 6th, 2022 at 9:00am Sandy will begin an ten week study of “Proverbs” in Class Room D.
The Book of Provers is the Bible’s how-to-manual. The Proverbs teach us how to be successful and prosperous in our work, our dealings with family and friends, and our relationship with God. 
 
Proverbs 30:5
Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
 
 
 
Sandy’s class will finish the study on Proverbs on April 24th. They will be taking the summer off.
Stay tuned for the next class on August 7th.
