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 22 - American Standard Version

1
A [good] name is rather to be chosen than great riches, [And] loving favor rather than silver and gold.
2
The rich and the poor meet together: Jehovah is the maker of them all.
3
A prudent man seeth the evil, and hideth himself; But the simple pass on, and suffer for it.
4
The reward of humility [and] the fear of Jehovah [Is] riches, and honor, and life.
5
Thorns [and] snares are in the way of the perverse: He that keepeth his soul shall be far from them.
6
Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when he is old he will not depart from it.
7
The rich ruleth over the poor; And the borrower is servant to the lender.
8
He that soweth iniquity shall reap calamity; And the rod of his wrath shall fail.
9
He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; For he giveth of his bread to the poor.
10
Cast out the scoffer, and contention will go out; Yea, strife and ignominy will cease.
11
He that loveth pureness of heart, [For] the grace of his lips the king will be his friend.
12
The eyes of Jehovah preserve [him that hath] knowledge; But he overthroweth the words of the treacherous man.
13
The sluggard saith, There is a lion without: I shall be slain in the streets.
14
The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: He that is abhorred of Jehovah shall fall therein.
15
Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; [But] the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
16
He that oppresseth the poor to increase his [gain], [And] he that giveth to the rich, [shall come] only to want.
17
Incline thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, And apply thy heart unto my knowledge.
18
For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee, If they be established together upon thy lips.
19
That thy trust may be in Jehovah, I have made [them] known to thee this day, even to thee.
20
Have not I written unto thee excellent things Of counsels and knowledge,
21
To make thee know the certainty of the words of truth, That thou mayest carry back words of truth to them that send thee?
22
Rob not the poor, because he is poor; Neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
23
For Jehovah will plead their cause, And despoil of life those that despoil them.
24
Make no friendship with a man that is given to anger; And with a wrathful man thou shalt not go:
25
Lest thou learn this ways, And get a snare to thy soul.
26
Be thou not one of them that strike hands, [Or] of them that are sureties for debts.
27
If thou hast not wherewith to pay, Why should he take away thy bed from under thee?
28
Remove not the ancient landmark, Which thy fathers have set.
29
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; He shall not stand before mean men.

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.
