Worship This Sunday

February 19

Join us in worship this Sunday, February 19, as Pastor Doug continues the sermon series on Elijah.  This week's message is "Elijah: Humble Pie" with the Scripture reading from 1 Kings 21:27-29.  The Puppets for Jesus will be with us at both services this Sunday. 


Because of the pancake breakfast this Sunday we will not have Sunday School for the kids.  Please enjoy the time together as a family.  There will be crafts and activities in the Fellowship Hall for families to work on together during the 10:00 hour.   The Adult Sunday School class will meet as usual - please feel free to pick up a plate of pancakes and bring it along to class!



Join us this Sunday, February 19, at 10:00 a.m. for an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast! The children and youth of our church will cook, serve, and clean-up for this amazing event! Free-will donation will be accepted with proceeds to benefit the middle and high school missions.
