Living Together in the Word

Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path – Psalm 119

Our relationship to God is through His Word.  His Word not only directs us, but gives us hope and life in Christ.  Finally Jesus directs His Church to make disciples by teaching to keep everything He commanded.  In light of this, we will be offering a time for study of God’s Word for all ages beginning Sept. 15th.  This means that our worship services will be moved to 8:30 am and 11:00 am with Bible Study and Children’s Education time between services from 10:00 – 10:45 am.  This gives us really 3 opportunities each Sunday to hear God’s Word and even delve into it deeper during the education time at 10:00 am.  The Nursery will be staffed during these 3 time periods.
