Lenten Study

A six session adult Lenten study on the Lord’s Prayer, taught by Pastor Denny, will begin Sunday, March 6 and end April 10 at 8:30 AM. We will take a deep dive into the prayer we all know and pray regularly by using Adam Hamilton’s book, The Lord’s Prayer, The Meaning and Power of the Prayer Jesus Taught.  Fourteen dollars will cover the cost of the book.  Child care will be provided for infants.  There is also a children’s Sunday School at that time where all children are welcome to attend while parents are in class.  Allow this class to lead you into a new understanding of this prayer as we take time to reflect during this Lenten season.

Church Center App

New Planning Center Management System

In an effort to update our church’s management system, communication system, membership records and giving records, we have begun to use the new Planning Center church management software.

You are encouraged to download the app to your smartphone or device. It will allow you to update your personal information in our church records, give online one-time or give a recurring gift directly from your bank account.

The App will also allow you to see at a glance your giving to date. Many of you have noticed receiving an emailed giving receipt if the system has your email linked.

There are many possibilities in the Church Center App and Planning Center Management System. We are dipping our toes in slowly and hoping to use more of the features soon.
