Journey Through Exodus
New Sermon Series

Starting Thursday, January 6. 

The Book of Exodus gives us an account of God's deliverance of  His people recorded in the Old Testament. Through this account, we get an insight into who our God is. We also get a glimpse of His plan of deliverance for His people from slavery into the Promised land. This sets the stage for His ultimate plan of deliverance for all His children from sin into eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ. 

To encourage you in exploring this book of the Bible, use the January “Monthly Bible Challenge” and check out Connexus, our small group ministry of fellowship and Bible study.

Renewing Hope In Our Community Through Christ

In these pages, we invite you to learn about who we are, what we believe, and how God is calling us to renew hope in our community through Christ. In these challenging times, more than ever, we are the church – called, gathered, enlightened, and made new by the Word of God. In the time you spend on this site, we pray that it would inspire you to draw closer to God.

NOTE: We are thankful that we can gather together once again in-person to hear God's Word and have fellowship with one another every Sunday at 9:30 am. You are most welcome to come worship with us. For those who are unable to join us for in-person worship, we will still have the facebook livestream available.
