We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired Word of God. This is the word that we live by to rule our faith and practice. Our mission is to seek and minister to the lost, presenting to them the gospel that they may know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We assemble together to be led by the Holy Spirit in our worship.  We believe in promoting spiritual growth among new believers & maturing Christians and to encourage one another in Christian love. 


Sunday School begins at 9:00 AM followed by Worship Service at 10:00 AM. We also provide Children’s Worship Service every Sunday during our ten o’clock worship hour. Wednesday night services are held at 6:30 PM. Please see the Weekly Schedule or Upcoming Events section for more information. We would love for you to come worship with us in the Lord’s house.

God Bless You!

Newsletter Sept 25th


These days, in order to jog our memories, we use ideas written on paper, Iphones, Ipads, and computers. Some of these devices you can program to “ding” and remind you of an important task. It was not always that way. Many years ago, I often heard the phrase, “Tie a string around your finger so you will not forget”. Did they say that where you grew up? I have no idea whether or not anyone did tie a string. I never saw it happen. However, this is what I did see. Someone would come into our Curb Market [usually a child or a husband]. We would ask, “Can I help you”?They would open their hand, and there in their palm, was a grocery list written in ink. It was written so that they would not forget what they came to buy,
When we read  Isaiah 49: 14 we hear Israel complaining that God has forgotten them. God’s reply is wonderful. God says, a loving mother never forgets her child [49: 15] and He has not forgotten Israel. In fact, the Lord goes on to proclaim, “I have engraved you in the palm of My hand.” [49: 16]
Think of it! Rejoice, shout, leap for joy. As a Believer in Jesus, your Heavenly Father has placed your name in the palm of His hand. You will never be ignored, forgotten, or be unwanted. You are loved with an everlasting love. Jesus echoed this truth when He told us, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”. [Hebrews 13: 5] He also promised, “No one can take you from My Father’s hand”. [John 10: 29]
You know that the children and grandchildren that Pamela and I have live thousands of miles away. Yet, they are constantly on our minds. We think of them, talk to them when we are able, and send gifts regularly. Our love spans the miles. So it is with our Lord. He loves you, thinks of you, gives gifts, and talks with you. You are precious to Him.
Every time you look at the palm of your hand, be reminded, “My name is on the hand of my Heavenly Father”.
