New Sunday Evening Bible Study to Begin

When was the last time your read any of the Minor Prophets for your devotions? Ever? Can you even find them in the Bible?!? Guys like: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, etc. Why did God even put them in the Bible? Well He put them in the Bible for a good reason or else they would not be there. And He put them there for us to read and learn from. But perhaps you have found them hard to understand.

On Sunday October 13, 2013 we will begin a study of Hosea. Our goal is to help you understand this important prophet. But another goal is to help you have the tools to understand the other Minor Prophets as well and to benefit and enjoy this rich treasure of literature in our Bible.

Sunday evening Bible study is led by Pastor Todd Jaussen from 6:00-7:00 pm weekly except for the first Sunday of each month.

Raising Funds for Dental Drill in Dominican Republic (UPDATED)

One of the needs we have found in the Dominican Republic during our work in the villages is the need for dental care. A dentist we work with donates her time to offer free care, but the DR government no longer provides portable drills. We are seeking to raise the money to purchase such a drill. We are currently $500 short of our goal of $1500. If this is something you would like to donate to, please place your gift in a pew or tithing envelope, mark it DR Drill, and place it in the offering plate.

Update: Thanks to the generosity of our church family, we now have the full $1500 to fund the portable dentist drill for the Dominican Republic. Thank you for responding to this need!
