Transfiguration Sunday 2018

Join us for worship this Sunday, February 11,
as we hear about Jesus' transfiguration before His disciples.

Worship at 9:00 am


“And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.” (Mark 9:2–8, ESV)

Sanctity of Life Sunday 2018


God gives life! God preserves life! God asks us to be good stewards not only of our life, but of the lives of those around us. Unfortunately sin brings not only death (destruction of life) but also confusion of how we can be good stewards of God-given life. In our society today abortion is legal, physician assisted suicide is becoming legal and viewed by many as acceptable, discrimination (thinking of one life better than another), sex trafficing and similar slavery issues (seeing life as just a consumer product) and many other issues have so corrupted our view of LIFE, God-given life. 
This Sunday, January 21, we will recognize "Sanctity of Life Sunday" and be reminded how precious every life is becasue it is a gift of God. Many congregations across the world will observe Sanctity of Life Sunday some time in January. Come and hear how precious your life, and the life of others, is in God's eyes.
