Sunday Worship

Lift Up

“When nothing else would help, love lifted me!” says the old Gospel song. To be lifted up is to be drawn into the love of God. Jesus drew all kinds of people to him during his short tenure on earth, drawing no boundaries for who was invited into that love. As his hour to die drew nearer, he spread the message that all things would be enveloped in his love even after he was gone. What uplifting message will we pass on to others?

Rev. Elbert Dulworth

Vesper Service Thursday

Thursday at 7 p.m. on Facebook

Unwind, relax, reflect, and connect with God.

Finding God in Service

God speaks to you in several ways, including prayer, scripture, worship, and--- service. Yes, when you serve others, you can connect with God. Consider the story of Brother Lawrence, a dishwasher who had deep experiences with God over the kitchen sink!
