Join us in celebrating the joy of Jesus on Sunday mornings at 10 am. You can participate online or in-person. However you participate, our prayer is that you will be encouraged and uplifted through your participation in our worship. Thank you for being part of our faith community.
Today, we begin a new message series on the Book of Ephesians. We will look at Ephesians 1:1-14 where the Apostle Paul reminds us that we have been blessed with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING. There are times when we may not feel blessed. But even in the most difficult moments of life, the hand of God is at work in our lives.

Verse of the Month
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.Ephesians 2:8–10, ESV

If you already shop at Amazon, it is easy to support our ministry. Instead of going to amazon.com to shop, just add “smile.” before amazon.com. So the link will be smile.amazon.com. Any time you make a purchase at this link 0.5% of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice. It may not be much, but it adds up over time and as more of us make use of this service. Please keep in mind that you need to use the smile link every time you make a purchase. If you go back to using the regular Amazon link or use the Amazon app, we will not get a donation with those purchases.
