Highlights

  • How Beautiful Are the Feet: Isaiah 52:1-12
    "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news...who says to Zion, 'Your God reigns'." This is a passage of celebration! It is a song of deliverance that promises Israel's enemies will be defeated. They will be free & redeemed.
    However, it is more than that. It is also a reminder to us today. Our world is in desperate need of some beautiful feet. The world is in darkness & God left us here to be His feet and share the Good News of Jesus Christ to those around us!
  • Kids4Truth-Wednesdays @ 6:30 P.M.
    Children ages 4 years old thru 5th grade are welcome to join us on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 P.M. for Kids4Truth! Kids4Truth is designed to teach kids Bible doctrines as well as memorize Bible verses. We have more room for more kids so please invite your friends & neighbors!

  • Book Corner: Remaining Faithful in Ministry by John MacArthur
    Perhaps no one else has ever faced as much hardship, opposition, or relentless suffering as the apostle Paul. And yet, through it all, Paul stood firm in Christ and remained faithful--to the very end.
    The power of Paul's example has captivated veteran pastor John MacArthur for years, and here he outlines nine unwavering convictions that contributed to this remarkable perseverance. In an age when pastoral failure and burnout are increasingly common, this book is a call to endurance in ministry, encouraging pastors to stand strong in their role and not lose heart, regardless of what God sends their way.
