Online Giving






Welcome to our Online Worship.   The theme today is "A Faith to Meet Our Fears."  Our scripture is Matthew's account of Jesus walking on the water in the midst of the storm.  He still comes today even in the middle of the storms of our lives.   Today is also Fathers' Day and we want to express our appreciation to all our Fathers, especially our Father in heaven.  May God bless you as your worship today.

Call to Worship

Opening Prayer

Father God, as I worship you today, stir in my heart a holy expectancy, so that I might be prepared and ready so that my spirit might be open to the calling of your Spirit, that in listening for you I might hear you, that in waiting for you I might meet you, and that in meeting you I might follow you with all that am.   Give me a faith, Lord, that will meet my fears, even in the storms of my life.  Amen.

His Eye Is On the Sparrow


 Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever.  Amen.

Our Core Practices


Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.
