Highlights

  • Scripture Preparation for Sunday's Message
    Read II Corinthians 12:1-10 in preparation for Sunday's message.
  • God is at Work in Your Suffering: II Corinthians 12:1-10
    Suffering is one of the marks of a true servant of God. There are many examples of this in the Bible, including Paul. We can look at the apostles & prophets, and even Jesus to see evidence that this is true. However, God worked through all of these people to spread His Gospel throughout the world and He can use you too!

  • Book Corner: God and the Gay Christian?: A Response to Matthew Vines by R. Albert Mohler; Jam
    Christians and homosexuality is a hotly debated topic in today's evangelical world, and Southern Seminary continues that conversation in this publication. Matthew Vines's new book, God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships, argues that homosexual orientation and committed same-sex relationships are consistent with a "high view" of the Bible and evangelical Christianity. Southern Seminary president R. Albert Mohler Jr. and four other seminary faculty members refute this claim in the new SBTS Press e-book, God and the Gay Christian? A Response to Matthew Vines.

  • Mailbox Update!
    All the mailboxes have been updated & relabeled so if you or your family is listed in the recent directory, you should have a mailbox. Some of you may have moved and some have a mailbox that never had one before, so please check!
    Also, please utilize the mailboxes for the handing out of fliers, invites, cards, etc.
    And please check your mailboxes regularly for any mail so papers do not pile up. Mailboxes are located in the east hallway just past the restrooms. Thanks!
  • Updated Photos Needed
    We'd like to get our online directory updated, so we are requesting submission of recent photos to replace the ones currently in the directory. This is especially needed for the children in our church as many photos are extremely out of date. The photo need not be professional quality but can be a snapshot taken on a good camera or quality cell phone camera. If you need a picture taken, you can contact Renee Palermo and arrange to have a picture taken. Photo submissions can be made through the member section of the website or email them to Bob Mosey or Renee Palermo.
