    A Wednesday night Bible study began meets @ 6:00pm. The study is Isaiah: Striving Less and Trusting God More by Melissa Spoelstra. You can purchase digital or hard copy from Lifeway or on Amazon. A description of the study: Following God isn't about striving; it's about trusting. As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote, from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come, learn to rest in God's promises and grow in trust. In this 7-session study, Isaiah's words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won't be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him you'll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.


    A Women's Ministry page is available on our website. Go here to check it out.


    A Facebook page has also been established. You can access it here.
