Family Resemblance
Assuming what you harvest will happen at the same time you sow is not normal or reasonable. Once you sow, you wait with faith and expectancy, doing the work that needs to be done until the harvest comes. When you sow financially, there is not immediate response either. You must wait for the power of compound interest to work its “magic.” When you invest in your spiritual life, do you expect instant returns? God brings your work to maturity and makes your faithfulness become fruitfulness, but it takes a minute.

October 25th - Water Walk
Did you know:
• 844 million people live without clean water. 2.3 billion people do not have access to basic sanitation.
• Every 60 seconds a child dies from a preventable waterborne disease.
• Children miss 443 million days of school each year fetching water and fighting illness.*

This year will be different than in the past AND let’s make it the best! Let’s challenge each other and those in our families to walk, walk, walk. How many miles can you walk in an hour?

We need you to:
→ Download a pedometer for your phone (if you don’t already have one) in the month of October, until October 25th.
→ Ask friends and family to pledge a monetary amount per mile or an amount for your total miles walked
→ (This one's optional!) Wear a Water Walk shirt or a Church shirt and look good while you walk
→ Walk for one hour on October 25th, keep track of the miles and collect the donations

All received donations can be dropped off in the mail slot at the church. Please make checks payable to the church with Lifewater on the memo and we will mail in one donation from all of us.

Let's Get Connected
The most important way to stay in communication is through our online program, "OnRealm" or the phone version "Connect". It allows you to get information that is only shared inside the church family, get a first look at what is shared on other social media platforms and connect with each other. "Connect" also allows you a secure place to give. Finally, it acts as a virtual church directory! In an emergency, it is where we go first to look for you and how you are doing.

To get information as part of our church community, create an account at

Communion Sundays

Communion is offered monthly, usually the first Sunday of the month. Communion elements can be requested and will be delivered in the most efficient way. Please notify us two weeks ahead of Communion Sunday so we can do our best to make sure the elements are delivered on time. Each packet has been personally prayed over and blessed by the pastors.

Prayer Requests

Prayer is very important at our church.  Our Pastors and Intercessors welcome the opportunity to include your requests in their prayers.
