Finding God's Path for You!


Our lives are filled with choices, good and bad ones. Do you know if you are making the right choices, or will you suffer the consequences later?

Join us for this intergenerational (ages 8 – 80) Sunday School this Summer. We’ll study God’s path and plan for our life according to His commandments.

• Listen to the sage advice of your elder who has learned a thing or two about the wrong path.
• Listen to the question of a youth who struggles with the right path for her today in a convoluted world.
• Mentor and be mentored in faith and life!

Sunday @ 9:15am.

Grill Kings Men's Ministry

God. Grub. Guys.

What is it?
Grill Kings is an informal opportunity for men to gather around the grill and talk about their lives in the Light of God’s Word while enjoying some delicious grub.

Grill Kings is a place for men by men to address the issues men face:
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Managing Expectations
  • Marriage and Family
  • Male Leadership
  • Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health
How does it go?
Grill Kings meets for 2 hours on a Saturday night. We begin with 30 minutes of fellowship and mingling, followed by a demonstration of grilling practices of the food (steak, chicken, pork, vegetables, etc) our host has prepared.

After the demonstration and the meal, we’ll join for Bible study on the appointed topic. You’ll receive a bookmark to take that topic home with you.

What do I bring?
  • A friend
  • $5 for the host to reimburse him for meat/sides
  • Beverages to share
  • Bible (if you don’t have one, we’ll have extra!)

Next Time?

Christian Support Group - Tuesday Nights

When we come to church, we put on nice clothes, big smiles, and offer warm handshakes.
Get home, though, and Christians still struggle with:
  • Anxiety
  • Childhood Abuse
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Social Anxiety
  • Sobriety
  • Substance Abuse
  • Worry

We have formed a Christian Support Group called RESILIENT for those who struggle with these or other issues. We have male and female leaders to help Group members find strength in the Word and the community of believers.

There are many Support and Recovery Groups out there – but only RESILIENT is (1) based entirely on God’s Word (2) taught and led by fellow sinners who are not perfect but need God’s help daily and (3) doesn’t burden with guilt but places grace on the shoulders of those who struggle.

RESILIENT was created by Dr. Jason Jonker, a recovering addict with over 20 years clinical experience as a counselor helping people with mental, marital, physical, and other issues.

Rest in Jesus and His Care
Express My Need for Jesus
Seek God’s Presence Power
Imagine Freedom in Christ
Live Transparently by Owning My Sin
Invite Jesus to Change Me
Exalt Jesus Above All Things
Neutralize Temptation through Meditation on God’s Word
Tell Others What God Has Done For You
