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 20 - American Standard Version

Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler; And whosoever erreth thereby is not wise.
2
The terror of a king is as the roaring of a lion: He that provoketh him to anger sinneth [against] his own life.
3
It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife; But every fool will be quarrelling.
4
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the winter; Therefore he shall beg in harvest, and have nothing.
5
Counsel in the heart of man is [like] deep water; But a man of understanding will draw it out.
6
Most men will proclaim every one his own kindness; But a faithful man who can find?

A righteous man that walketh in his integrity, Blessed are his children after him.
8
A king that sitteth on the throne of judgment Scattereth away all evil with his eyes.

Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
10
Diverse weights, and diverse measures, Both of them alike are an abomination to Jehovah.
11
Even a child maketh himself known by his doings, Whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
12
The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, Jehovah hath made even both of them.

Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; And hold him in pledge [that is surety] for foreigners.

Bread of falsehood is sweet to a man; But afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

An inheritance [may be] gotten hastily at the beginning; But the end thereof shall not be blessed.

Say not thou, I will recompense evil: Wait for Jehovah, and he will save thee.
23
Diverse weights are an abomination to Jehovah; And a false balance is not good.
24
A man`s goings are of Jehovah; How then can man understand his way?
25
It is a snare to a man rashly to say, [It is] holy, And after vows to make inquiry.
26
A wise king winnoweth the wicked, And bringeth the [threshing] -wheel over them.
27
The spirit of man is the lamp of Jehovah, Searching all his innermost parts.
28
Kindness and truth preserve the king; And his throne is upholden by kindness.

Stripes that wound cleanse away evil; And strokes [reach] the innermost parts.

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.
