Daily Bible Readings for 2014
These are fast times we’re living in. As life moves quicker and quicker, we
can become overwhelmed and exhausted. It’s no surprise that when it comes to
our relationships, we find ourselves with little or no time to put into
them. Here is a different way to read through the Bible in a
year. May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God
inspired. Click here to

October 5, 2014. This table has been years in the making and we have Orin
Kaare to thank for its design.
From the Stewardship Committee
As school begins each fall, we start a new season of recognizing the time
and talents of our youth via school activities like academics, sports, and
music. It is also a time to recognize and assess our time, talents and
financial gifts to God and this church. We will be reaching out to you with
pledge cards in the coming weeks. Prayerfully consider how you could
increase your support to this church and our mission. Just as sports and
music require practice, so do our habits of giving. Let’s get to practice!
(luckily there are no sprints involved for us)
