There are a lot of things going on in the life of the church and we need your help. Sign up today to help our children's care team to serve the parents that are taking classes after church. There are eight weeks of classes and we want to make sure the parents who have kids can be uninterrupted during their time in the equipping class.
We currently do not have enough volunteers to help watch the kids after service during equipping classes. You do have a be a member to serve in this opportunity. If you are not taking a class after service and can help, please click on the link below to sign up for one or multiple dates to help.

Going forward we will be meeting for church prayer twice a month. The church prayer will be scheduled every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.

The event is scheduled to be held at the New Church Building and this is tentative depending on the renovation progress in September.
Building Renovation Needs
There have been some delays from our subcontractors, suppliers, engineers, and volunteers. We need your help in the renovation of this building. Some things we are able to control and other things are out of our control and we are trusting in God's timing, wisdom, and strength to keep this project moving. We are asking everyone to consider and commit to helping.
Here are our needs
- On our work days, we post on Telegram what we need your help with often times we do not get much help. This is usually general nonexperience work that most people can do. Join Telegram Group.
- We want to hire more men like Dima Herman who are able to do general construction. If you want to get hired or know some one who can work on this project, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Continue to give since the project budget increased to the things that we could not foresee before our purchase. Give Now.
We are excited to announce that sign-ups for the equipping classes are now available. This fall we have a variety of new and some recurring classes for everyone to participate in. Date and times vary and we want to encourage you to take a look at each one of these and sign-up for one of them.
Marriage: The How-to-Guide
This class will be devoted to learning and applying Christ's perfect design for marriage. The class will be theological and yet extremely practical. This class is encouraged for anyone who is married, engaged, or desires to be married in the future.
Firm Foundation: A Study in the Book of Romans (Fall 2021)
This class is a unique Bible study in the Book of Romans that will help the student form and solidify a spiritual foundation in the Word of God.
Women in the Church
What exactly does Christ say a woman can and cannot do in the Church? Is your answer based on "Christian culture," or Christ? In a world that is growing increasingly confused about the uniqueness of gender, may the church's understanding be clear. This class is a Bible study of select texts that reveal God's design for women in the church.
Homiletics: How to Preach/Teach
If you're interested in learning more about how to prepare a message/lesson/etc, you are welcome to attend. The class will consists of lectures then you will have a few weeks to prepare a message for an assigned text and then present the message in a lab setting. More details will follow.
How Our Local Church Goes Global
As we think of the return of Christ, we should be about the spread of the gospel. Join us in learning about how we go from local outreach to reaching the nations. Christ is calling everyone everywhere to repent and we want to participate in that commission in a way that honors our Savior.

Did you know that one of the easiest and most passive ways you can help advance the Gospel is by interacting with our Church's social media presence (and other ministries). Even a simple "like" will help put our posts in the view of your non-believing friends. Comments are better on Facebook, since they equate the comments with popularity.
