This Sunday we will focus on the importance of a grateful heart as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving. James has much to say to this young church regarding authentic faith, but woven into his words is the importance of a heart of gratitude. Just as he does in every area of Christian living, James raises the bar of thanksgiving. Be sure and join us on Wednesday evening for our Thanksgiving Eve service beginning at 7:00pm, as we gives thanks together as the church and celebrate Holy Communion focusing our thanksgiving on Jesus. This is always a special evening so please plan to join us on Thanksgiving Eve.

Is It Really All About the Money?
July 15, 2018 • July 15, 2018 • Pastor Dave Dick
Money is always an interesting topic both inside and outside the church. How to make it……How to spend it……How to invest it……How to share it…….How much is enough? As a society we tend to rate each other based on money and possessions. Often we covet the life of others and what they possess. The Bible has a great deal to say about money. This week we will look at some of the advice we receive from God’s Word in an effort to answer a number of questions about how we handle this important aspect of our lives. Join us this Sunday as we continue in our series, “The Bible #nofilter.”
Are We Having Fun Yet?

If you were to ask people, "where do you go to have fun?" church may not be first on the list. In fact, many today describe church, and those who attend church, as stuffy, too serious, unable to laugh, even boring. Boring? I beg your pardon…… But are they correct in their assessment? Is the church too serious? Can Christians actually have fun? This week we continue in our summer series, “The Bible #nofilter” as we answer the question “Are We Having Fun Yet?”

As we approach July 4th, we are reminded of the freedoms we possess in this nation. Most of us appreciate the wide variety of choices that we have been given in this country from the home that we live in, to the car we drive, to what career we pursue, to where we shop. The list is long and we are blessed to have choices. Most of these choices would not be considered right or wrong, but simply a preference. Many today argue that this same philosophy of personal choice should guide our approach to religion and truth. This Sunday we will consider the biblical response to that idea as we continue in our summer series “The Bible #nofilter.”
