Pleasure, romance, money and power are just a few of the gods that vie for our allegiance today. Join us as we explore what the Word says about the Lord taking His rightful place on the throne of our hearts.  We meet at 8:30am on Saturdays and a light breakfast will also be served. Please sign-up at the back table Sunday. Study books are $9.00

We have two monthly magazines that can be borrowed pertaining to college-aged young adults and teenagers.  You can pick up COLLEGIATE magazine for those who are college-aged or LIVING WITH TEENAGERS for parents of teens.  Both magazines are located in the Gospel tract display at the gym entrance.  We are asking that the magazines be borrowed for one week and then returned to the display.  Both magazines focus on spiritual growth and current issues facing our young people in today’s world.
