The Parlor Sunday School class for adults will be starting a new study, beginning Sunday. October 22, 2017. This is the newest DVD study produced by Ray Vander Laan. This study will last for five weeks and the class begins at 9:30 AM. Newcomers are encouraged to attend. Like the Roman Empire, today’s governments or organizations can become centered on power and believe their messages are the “good news.” As Christians, we’re called to proclaim God’s name in all the earth, but how do we do that in the midst of false gospels? Discover how Paul communicated the Good News of Christ to Philippi, a Roman colony that worshipped false gods. Paul encouraged the church in Philippi to consider itself a colony of heaven, not Rome. Consider your citizenship and the message you convey to the world as you gain a deeper understanding of the culture of ancient Philippi.

A new Women's Bible study will be starting up on Tuesday, October 24. The title of the study is "Steadfast Love" authored by Lauren Chandler. The class begins at 10:00 AM and will last from 10/24 to 12/5, a total of seven sessions. The study is based on Psalm 107. There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a full heart of gratitude and praise. Then there are times when God seems far away and we feel we have nothing to offer. Through it all He shows His steadfast love.

Children's Moments

During each worship services, children 6th grade & under are invited to the altar area to hear a children's message. After the message, they are excused to go to Children's Growing Up Church, under careful adult supervision. We want them to know they are an important part of the worship of our Lord.


Valet Service

The church has started a parking valet service, for those who wish their car to be parked. This service is provided year round. Anyone wishing to use this service can pull their car to the door on top of the hill driveway. Blowing your horn will notify the valet inside the door to come & park your car for you. They will then return your keys prior to Sunday School or Worship. After worship a valet will be happy to retrieve your car & bring it to the top of the hill. Persons should register for this service by contacting Linda Knapp (667-7056) & stating if you want to use it prior to Sunday School or prior to the worship service. Registering for the service is preferred to just sitting & blowing your horn over & over again. There is no charge for this service.  Pre-Sunday School service is from  9:15-9:30 & Pre-Worship is from 10:15-10:35
