During Covid-19, our policy is for all people to WEAR MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCE for the duration of any worship/fellowship where we are gathered in person!

 

Weekly Devotions


Pastor Dave offers weekly devotions for individuals and families using the Faith 5 model, including "highs/lows", the Bible lesson for each Sunday, questions for consideration and conversation, prayer and blessing.  

If you are unable to be at worship on Sunday, or if you are looking for a weekly family devotional, "Church Where You Are" is for you!
