A Tip for Parents

Even today buildings are laid out from a starting point. Ancient building used a stone carefully placed where one corner of the building would eventually arise from. A poorly placed cornerstone might cause the builders to have to work around a large rock or a swamp, or perhaps a cliff.

Our first lesson from 1 Peter 2:4-6 tells us to build the church out of people oriented by Christ.

The Offering

As disciples of Jesus Christ we give so that we may dedicate the whole of our lives by sharing a portion of what we earn with others.

Although COVID-19 has forced us to curtail all in person groups, meetings, classes, …, even office hours. Yet we continue other ministries. For example: Wednesday Bible Study, Sunday school for children and the Fellowship Hour all meet via video-teleconference.

In these unusual times we deeply appreciate your giving through your bank or by clicking our Give Now button. We continue to check our mailbox regularly so you may mail your check to us.
