Join us for worship this Sunday morning at 9:30 as we install new Deacons and Elders, have a Profession of Faith, and two baptisms.
With the New Year upon us you have likely considered a Bible reading plan and aren't sure where to start. Maybe you have tried to read the Bible in a year and get frustrated a few weeks in and end up getting behind and giving up. Perhaps you have been successful, but you looked back and remembered very little of what you read. In the coming year we want to encourage you to Abide in God's Word. Each month we will have a featured short book from the New Testament that you are encouraged to read multiple times and really know the book. There will be resources available to help you on your journey. On the first and third Sunday at 6:30 pm Pastor Mark will stream a live study on the book. Every Tuesday there will be a short devotional available on YouTube, Facebook, and audio podcast from a passage in the book of the month to encourage you to keep reading. Watch YouTube and Facebook this week for more information on resources and tips on being successful in digging into one book a month. The first book of the month will be Titus and is just 3 short chapters long. Check out the website http://abide.info for resources and information.
