We are participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS on April 7, 2018 in memory of, my father and the churches friend, Larry Ballowe.!
Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS — it robs a person of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. And what’s even worse is that right now, there’s no cure.
Will you join us and join the movement to cure ALS? It’s easy to register online at http://web.alsa.org.
Thank you and I can’t wait to have you by my side at the Walk!
PS - If you can't make it on April 7th please consider making a donation towards ALS in memory of my father. Thank you!!!

Palm Sunday - March 25 at 10:30am. On Palm Sunday we remember Jesus's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. When Jesus entered Jerusalem that day, he made it clear that he was the long-awaited Messiah King. And yet he overturned expectations by coming in weakness instead of power, compelled by love for his Father and for his people whom he came to save. Our children will be waving their palm branches as we sing our praise to the Messiah King.
Maundy Thursday - March 29 at 6:30pm. At this dinner service we'll reflect on the night that Jesus spent with his disciples in the Upper Room, as he used the occasion of the Passover meal to reveal the meaning of his death.

Our dinner will be followed by a time of worship that will include a brief message and an observance of the Lord's Supper. (No childcare - children of all ages are invited to attend!) There is no cost, but we are asking for volunteers to sign up to bring soup and/or bread. Please sign up here!

Easter Sunday - April 1 at 9:00 and 10:30am. All of our hopes and expectations are realized in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, making Easter the most celebrative day of the year!

In his 12th novel, NYT Bestselling author Charles Martin has penned a radical retelling of the story of the prodigal son. 'Long Way Gone' takes us from tent revivals to the Ryman Auditorium to the tender relationships between a broken man, the girl he thought he lost, and the father who never stopped calling him home.
At the age of eighteen, musician and songwriter Cooper O’Connor took everything his father held dear and drove 1,200 miles from home to Nashville, his life riding on a six-string guitar and the bold wager that he had talent. But his wager soon proved foolish.
Five years after losing everything, he falls in love with Daley Cross, an angelic voice in need of a song. But just as he realizes his love for Daley, Cooper faces a tragedy that threatens his life as well as his career. With nowhere else to go, he returns to his remote home in the Colorado Mountains, searching for answers about his father and his faith.
Join us for lunch on the lawn. Bring your chairs, tents, etc and your appetite. Our Men will be cooking up some yummy BBQ for you to purchase. The cost is $5 for children and $7 for adults. Funds raised will benefit church building improvements.
We will also be celebrating our graduating Seniors that Sunday with a video during the service.
