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 October 31st, 2021, Sharon Chester will begin an  Ephesians Bible Study in Class Room A beginning at 9:00am.
Broken marriages, shattered friendships, racial divisions, war between nations—we live in a fractured world. How can the pieces be put back together? In Ephesians, Paul lifts the veil from the future to allow us to see God’s plan to unite everyone and everything in Christ. 
 
Ephesians 6:11
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
 
 
 
 

Sunday School with

Sandy Wylie

Beginning Sunday November 14th at 9:00am Sandy will begin an eight week study of Sabbath in Class Room D.
What is the sabbath? A weekly day of rest and worship. A day to rejoice in abundance. A day to practice thankfulness. A day to slow down, take a deep breath, step aside from work and worries, an let the world go on without us, knowing that God is caring for everyone and everything.
 
Exodus 20:8
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it  holy
