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 21 - American Standard Version

1
The king`s heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the watercourses: He turneth it whithersoever he will.
2
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the hearts.
3
To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.
4
A high look, and a proud heart, [Even] the lamp of the wicked, is sin.
5
The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness; But every one that is hasty [hasteth] only to want.
6
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue Is a vapor driven to and fro by them that seek death.
7
The violence of the wicked shall sweep them away, Because they refuse to do justice.
8
The way of him that is laden with guilt is exceeding crooked; But as for the pure, his work is right.
9
It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.
10
The soul of the wicked desireth evil: His neighbor findeth no favor in his eyes.
11
When the scoffer is punished, the simple is made wise; And when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge.
12
The righteous man considereth the house of the wicked, [How] the wicked are overthrown to [their] ruin.
13
Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, He also shall cry, but shall not be heard.
14
A gift in secret pacifieth anger; And a present in the bosom, strong wrath.
15
It is joy to the righteous to do justice; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
16
The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding Shall rest in the assembly of the dead.
17
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: He that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
18
The wicked is a ransom for the righteous; And the treacherous [cometh] in the stead of the upright.
19
It is better to dwell in a desert land, Than with a contentious and fretful woman.
20
There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; But a foolish man swalloweth it up.
21
He that followeth after righteousness and kindness Findeth life, righteousness, and honor.
22
A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, And bringeth down the strength of the confidence thereof.
23
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue Keepeth his soul from troubles.
24
The proud and haughty man, scoffer is his name; He worketh in the arrogance of pride.
25
The desire of the sluggard killeth him; For his hands refuse to labor.
26
There is that coveteth greedily all the day long; But the righteous giveth and withholdeth not.
27
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination: How much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind!
28
A false witness shall perish; But the man that heareth shall speak so as to endure.
29
A wicked man hardeneth his face; But as for the upright, he establisheth his ways.
30
There is no wisdom nor understanding Nor counsel against Jehovah.
31
The horse is prepared against the day of battle; But victory is of Jehovah.

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.
