Service Times



Highlights

  • Where Can You Turn When Life is Hard?-Psalm 4
    From economic fears to crime to health fears to problems with/from people, life is full of stress! So where do you turn? Things? Other people? God wants us to turn to Him in stressful times. Anything else is a poor substitute for God. Trials & stress should drive us to God, not from God. If we trust Him, the result will be joy & peace!

    ABF/Sunday School classes are meeting at 9:30 am.
    Children's church for ages 3-8 will meet during the sermon time.
     
    A live-stream of the worship service will be available at blairridge.org as well.
