We will begin a new ministry for people who have lost loved ones. This is open to anyone in the church or community. Please sign up if you are interested in attending. A start date will be announced soon.
Winter Book Study - The Screwtape Letters
Our book study is in full swing. We are currently reading The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, which Pastor will be leading. It is a Christian apologetic novel dedicated to J. R. R. Tolkien. It is written in a satirical, epistolary style and while it is fictional in format, the plot and characters are used to address Christian theological issues, primarily those to do with temptation and resistance to it. If you are interested, please sign-up at the table. There will be a morning and evening study.

Watch the Service on YouTube!

The livestream will begin at 10:55am.
