Pastor Chris Starr is currently preaching a series on Sunday mornings entitled, “What is a Bible believing Church”; Sunday evening he is preaching a series on “Communion with God”. It has been very helpful along with some handouts to be used during daily devotions to help us stay focused during our prayer time. Wednesday evenings, he is teaching “What is a clear Christian Testimony”. These messages can be heard here on Sermon Audio.
Our teens took their junior/senior trip recently. They had a great time in the Pocono Mountains and New York City. It was a great time for them and the adults that went along. One of the highlights of their trip was a time of four wheeling on trails.
Our annual Volleyball tournament was in February. We invited several churches to come for the day and enjoy a variety of activities including volleyball. It was a great time of delicious food, fun, and fellowship.
Boys basketball is a highlight for many during the months of February and March. It is a good time of fellowship for those who come to watch during the slower months. There is a great competitive spirit, laughter, and fun while the boys learn drills, practice, and play the game.
Ladies’ Sunday School classes have begun and will continue during the month of March. The first class was on “The Bumps are what you climb on”. We will all face the bumps but it is up to you what they become. “And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Duet. 31:8
