Online Giving






Welcome to our Online Worship.   The title of my message for today is "Believing God's Promises."  The scripture is Psalm 132.  God is faithful to keep his word.  He made a covenant with David and promised that one of his descendants would sit on his throne "forever and ever."  This psalm is a reminder to us that we can always count on God to fulfill his promises.  May God be blessed as we worship him.

Call to Worship

Opening Prayer

O God, you are worthy to be worshiped, so may you be blessed by our expressions of love and devotion to you.  May your holy name be lifted up.  You are our God and we are your people and all praise and adoration belong to you.  Receive our worship for we offer it in the name of Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords.  Amen.

Standing on the Promises


Believing God's Promises
Psalm 132

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Giving of Tithes and Offerings



Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. 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.
