Sunday School classes are at 9:30 a.m.

This Sunday, we’ll look at the fourth chapter of The Story - “Deliverance (Moses).” The Story takes specific selections from the NIV scriptures and places them in chronological order so the reader can better understand how God’s story and our story intersects.

If you would like to catch up on the sermons, recordings are online at or you can request a CD through the church office.
