We have begun gathering again for worship services, although it doesn't look the same as before. Click here to read a document laying out our plan for onsite worship services.
Amidst the current circumstances caused by the COVID-19 crisis, our daily routines, our work, and our time with others probably looks a lot different than before. Many things have changed. One thing that is certain, though, is that God and His Word never change. Praise God that He is our Rock, our Comforter, and Provider amidst the changes all around us and that He speaks to us through the Bible even today.
Now is a great time to begin some new habits and disciplines that can help you and your family grow in your love and knowledge of the Lord and His Word. These are disciplines that you can continue, no matter how your schedule may change in the coming weeks and months. Listed below are a few resources we have collected to assist you in this process of growth.
Additionally, our pastors would love to hear from you, pray for you, and help you in whatever way they can. Click here for contact information for Pastors Jeremy and Stan.

Help your children (and yourself!) more easily memorize God's Word through Scripture set to music. Seeds Family Worship music writes the songs we have used in our AWANA children's ministry. Click here for more information about their music.

Some of our children's Sunday School classes have used Truth:78's curriculum for the past few years. It is excellent! Those at Truth:78 have been working hard to put out online content that is specific to the events going on in our world right now.
Truth:78 says -
"When the world is shaking like it has for the past two months, our children (and their parents) need a firm place to stand. We need to be more intentional than ever about putting a rock of truth beneath our children that can hold them in this current crisis and in those that they will inevitably face in the years to come.
Our help for churches and families is collected at our Home-Based Discipleship page, which includes an original series of weekly devotional lessons: Biblical Truth to Teach Children about Diseases and Disasters.
Beyond this season of interruptions and alternative arrangements, church and families need a vision for discipleship that will guide them through a time of reopening and what follows. The new book Zealous offers this vision, along with encouragement to grow in zeal-a fervor and diligence born out of a passion for God and His glory."
