Services

We believe that corporate worship is something that touches the heart of God. We consistently are working to enhance the services so you can connect with God in a personal way; however, we believe that worship is much more than the Sunday morning worship experience. Worship is anything and everything we do to honor God with our actions, choices, and decisions. May we encourage you to join us in a lifestyle of worship!

Lenten Sunday Services and Wednesday Services

The theme for our Sunday Sermons will be "Anxious for Nothing" based on Philippians 4:6-7, one of the most meaningful texts in the Bible, in fact it is the most highlighted passage in Kindle (Amazon's book reader). These words are meant to calm our worries and anxieties which we certainly need today. The themes for each Sunday are:

  • Rejoice in the Lord Always
  • Let Your Gentleness Be Evident to God
  • The Peace of God Will Guard Your Heart
  • Meditate on These Things

Let's take a journey to explore how to leave our worries to God and in their place receive the joy and peace of Jesus' love and presence. 

Our Wednesday Services theme will be "He Chose the Nails" where we will explore the various gifts Jesus gave us on the cross.

Every gift from God reveals his love, but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts ot the cross. These gifts came not wrapped in paper but in passion. They were not placed around a tree but around a cross. They were not covered with ribbons but sprinkled with the blood that Christ shed on our behalf.

We will explore the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brown. The nails that tore his flesh. The seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb where he forever defeated sin and death.

The hill of the cross is rich with the gifts of God's grace. These were gifts he didn't have to give. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So, as we unwrap these gifts, we need to pause and listen for his voice. As we do, perhaps we will h ear him whisper, "I did it just for you."

The themes for each Wednesday are:

  • He Chose to be One of Us
  • He Chose to Forgive Us
  • He Chose to Invite Us Into His Presence
  • He Chose to Love Us Forever
  • He Chose to Give Us Victory
  • He Chose to Give Us Confidence

Holy Week and Easter Services

Join us on Sunday, March 25th for Palm Sunday as we begin Holy Week. Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. From triumph to travesty may well describe our Savior’s entry into the city—until He triumphed for us on the cross.

Rejoice, for Jesus went as our substitute—to triumph over sin, death, and hell for us. He went in love. He went to make us His very own now and eternally.

Ride on, ride on, in majesty!

In lowly pomp ride on to die.

Bow Thy meek head to mortal pain,

Then take, O Christ, Thy power and reign!

Holy Week continues with our final Wednesday Lenten Service, followed by Maundy Thursday. Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified.

During this meal, Jesus washed the feet of His disciples in an extraordinary display of humility. He then commanded them to do the same for each other.

It was on the Thursday of Christ's final week before being crucified and resurrected that He said these words to his disciples:

"A new commandment I give to you,

 

that you love one another: just as I have loved you,

 

you also are to love one another" (John 13:34)

 

We follow this service with two on Good Friday. On Good Friday we remember the day Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. It is such a dark and bleak event commemorating a day of suffering and death for Jesus.

Good Friday marks the day when wrath and mercy met at the cross.

For I delivered to you as of first

importance what I also received:

that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures.

(1 Cor. 15:3)

This dark day is followed by Easter, the glorious celebration of the day Jesus was raised from the dead. Easter marks Christ's triumph over death and, as the Apostle Peter writes, our "new birth into a living hope." It's a time to reflect on salvation, redemption, and the future coming of Christ's kingdom.

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life.

He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;

and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."

(John 11:25-26)
