A congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) www.pcanet.org. We are a confessional church committed to the inerrancy of the Bible, the historic doctrines of the Reformed faith, and the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
Our Goal: It is our desire to impact our city and surrounding regions with the Biblical message of Jesus Christ, that as a community, so freed and transformed, we would worship God, invite others to experience His life-changing power, and reach people around the world for His glory.
2014 Theme Verse "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." Luke 10:2
Sunday, December 14 will be the third Sunday in Advent. In addition to the beautiful music of the season, our worship will focus each week on the promise in Matthew 1:21 ... "He will save His people from their sins." This third Sunday, Pastor Dunn will examine the question, "What is the sin from which He saves?" The 10:30 am morning service will conclude with a 15-minute Christmas concert from our 15-member handbell choir before we move into the fellowship hall for a covered dish luncheon. On Sunday evening at 6 pm, we will continue our studies in 1 Timothy. Our Wednesday evening dinner at 5:45 will be followed by the next DVD in the series, "Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis." We will meet at church at 3 pm on Saturday afternoon, Dec. 13 to go caroling to our elderly home-bound members.
