Notes from Your Pastors
Expand
Our family wants to personally thank each of you for love, patience, guidance, support, willingness to help, prayers, words of encouragement, gifts and more that you have shown us over the past year. We have not been able to be in relationship with each of you as we had hoped over the past year with COVID-19 taking hold of many of our plans; however, we are blessed to be one of your pastoral families and we look forward to what 2021 holds for us. Please know we want to be in relationship with each of you through conversation, porch visits, and phone calls and more so feel free to reach out to us and we will work to reach out to you.
May our Lord Jesus Christ, bless you and your families.
The Arbaughs - Pastor Kimberly, Doug, Paige and Phillip


You have overwhelmed our family with your thoughts, prayers, and support. This year has been challenging but an amazing journey of discovery. A chapter, though it continues still, that has taught us so much about ourselves and God's desire for us in this community. To think this time last year I was newly fitted with a walking boot as I continued healing after my accident. During our trip to the Holy Lands in February, the message that was impressed upon me was to be present in God's presence. This year, I feel a call to commitment to His Word. We are so excited about what this next year will disclose for all who commit themselves to God's Word as we continue to seek God's presence in our daily life. I pray that Psalm 37:5 will be a message ascribed upon all of our hearts this Christmas and new year. "Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act." (ESV).
Faithfully, Pastor J.P., Jocelyn, Zoe, and Evan
