A Note from our Preschool Department
In the preschool department, we learn about Jesus, the Creation, our Community and the World. We learn to play together and share with each other. We learn to listen and pray. The most important thing that we learn is how much God loves us.

This SPRING we will be continuing a Bible study called “Masterwork: Essential Messages from God’s Servants
In the Cross for Christ study we will examine the centrality of the cross in the mind and mission of Christ, why he died, and three great achievements of the cross. It gives us, among other things, a new, worshiping relationship to God, a new and balanced understanding of ourselves, and a new incentive to give ourselves in mission. The Centrality of the Cross, Why Did Christ Die, the Salvation of Sinners, The Revelation of God, The Conquest of Evil, The Community of Celebration, and Self Understanding and Self Giving, will be discussed over the next seven weeks.
Next, we will then discuss for six weeks How to Survive in an Angry World. In today’s society and economic environment people are often angry. They are mad at what happened at work, at home and sometimes even at church. The truth is, we all get angry at one time or another. The question we need to ask ourselves is, How should we deal with anger in ourselves and respond to it in others? The Bible gives us very clear instruction regarding how we should handle this powerful and potentially damaging emotion. A six week study authored by Dr. Charles Stanley will cover the definitions of Anger, Three ways Anger is Manifested, Exploring the Roots of Anger, Letting Go of Anger, the Balm for Anger, and Anger Aimed at God.
We will also continue to build a foundation of what we believe through scripture that talks about our belief in God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit.
What the world needs more of today is Christians who are full of love and compassion for others that know what they believe and are ready to share that belief with others BOLDLY.

Room: Fidelis - 127
Teacher: Irene Moss
Psalm 19:7—The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.
Proverbs 11:25—...he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
These two verses characterize the Fidelis class. Come refill your vessel each week through studying God’s word and the Life Ventures curriculum with us. Our class cares for its members, its church family and the larger community. In the words of the author, Barbara Johnson, “I think that’s the secret to being a real friend—to always be looking for ways to encourage and refresh others.” Our goal is to praise Jesus, our Lord and Savior, and give him all honor and glory as we learn more about Him.
Group: Ladies (50 / Up)
Teacher: Susan Blankenship

Sunday Bible Study Groups and Church make a perfect fit.
Without Sunday morning groups,
It’s like you missed something important for the day,
It’s the power and energy that keeps you going Monday thru Friday.
This group or another group, you must decide,
So deep inside your soul God’s word will abide.

We encourage anyone who is looking for a group, to join us in our Sunday morning fellowship.

Come, join us each Sunday morning.
