Wednesday Night Worship and Prayer Ministry…Worship on Wednesday evenings will be taking a break for a while in order to focus our resources on the three Sunday morning worship services and our Christian Education Hour. Prayer Ministry will still meet at 6:30 pm on Wednesday nights, with Bible study to follow at 7:00 pm.   

Midweek Bible Study has moved…from Monday nights to Wednesday nights.  Whether a new Bible study student or a seasoned studier of God’s Word, all are welcome on Wednesdays from 7 pm – 8 pm to explore the truths of Scripture together. Our first topic is Romans!
