Our worship services are currently Saturday evenings at 5:30 PM and Sunday morning at 9:00 AM

We welcome all who wish to attend and ask that you follow a few simple guidelines:

1.  Please be respectful of others already in church by maintaining a minimum distance of 6 feet from anyone who is not family or a companion (if you rode to church with someone, that is considered a companion).

2.  Wearing masks will not be mandatory, but if wearing one makes you, or others with you, more comfortable, then wearing one is strongly recommended. Wearing gloves falls into the same category.

3.  If you are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not attend worship until your symptoms are gone, and you are confident you are no longer contagious.

We are recording a video of a service each week which is available for you to watch on YouTube if you are unable to attend.  We will celebrate Holy Communion, but how we do that has changed a bit which will be explained prior to the start of the service.  May God bless us all in the days, weeks, months and years to come.

Proverbs Chapter 19 - American Standard Version

1
Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity Than he that is perverse in his lips and is a fool.
2
Also, that the soul be without knowledge is not good; And he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
3
The foolishness of man subverteth his way; And his heart fretteth against Jehovah.
4
Wealth addeth many friends; But the poor is separated from his friend.
5
A false witness shall not be unpunished; And he that uttereth lies shall not escape.
6
Many will entreat the favor of the liberal man; And every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
7
All the brethren of the poor do hate him: How much more do his friends go far from him! He pursueth [them with] words, [but] they are gone.
8
He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: He that keepeth understanding shall find good.
9
A false witness shall not be unpunished; And he that uttereth lies shall perish.
10
Delicate living is not seemly for a fool; Much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
11
The discretion of a man maketh him slow to anger; And it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
12
The king`s wrath is as the roaring of a lion; But his favor is as dew upon the grass.
13
A foolish son is the calamity of his father; And the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
14
House and riches are an inheritance from fathers; But a prudent wife is from Jehovah.
15
Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; And the idle soul shall suffer hunger.
16
He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his soul; [But] he that is careless of his ways shall die.
17
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto Jehovah, And his good deed will he pay him again.
18
Chasten thy son, seeing there is hope; nd set not thy heart on his destruction.
19
A man of great wrath shall bear the penalty; For if thou deliver [him], thou must do it yet again.
20
Hear counsel, and receive instruction, That thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
21
There are many devices in a man`s heart; But the counsel of Jehovah, that shall stand.
22
That which maketh a man to be desired is his kindness; And a poor man is better than a liar.
23
The fear of Jehovah [tendeth] to life; And he [that hath it] shall abide satisfied; He shall not be visited with evil.
24
The sluggard burieth his hand in the dish, And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25
Smite a scoffer, and the simple will learn prudence; And reprove one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge.
26
He that doeth violence to his father, and chaseth away his mother, Is a son that causeth shame and bringeth reproach.
27
Cease, my son, to hear instruction [Only] to err from the words of knowledge.
28
A worthless witness mocketh at justice; And the mouth of the wicked swalloweth iniquity.
29
Judgments are prepared for scoffers, And stripes for the back of fools.

Daily Golden Verse

2nd Chronicles 20:1-4
[20:1] And it came to pass after this, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them some of the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. [20:2] Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea from Syria; and, behold, they are in Hazazon-tamar (the same is En-gedi). [20:3] And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek unto Jehovah; and he proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. [20:4] And Judah gathered themselves together, to seek [help] of Jehovah: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek Jehovah.
