John 4:34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”

Midweek Lenten Services

Posted on

Our midweek services will begin on Ash Wednesday, March 6, 7 pm.

The theme of our series is “Mementos of Our Savior’s Passion.”

When the Second World War ended,  merican servicemen and women came home victorious, bringing back mementos of the war. There was another war of far greater importance in which we have mementos. These items in themselves were of no great value, but played a role in Jesus’ passion. We will be considering how they tie in with what He did for us.

These midweek services can deepen our appreciation of the redemptive work our Savior, Jesus Christ, accomplished in our behalf.

2018 Lenten Worship

Posted on

“Abide with me: fast falls the eventide;
the darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me. “

Join us for a Lenten series using the beloved hymn “Abide with Me”. Our services will begin February 14.

We pray this series will be a blessing to all as we remember and thank the Lord for Jesus’ grace and atoning sacrifice for all.

I need Thy presence ev’ry passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.

Series Theme: O Lord, Abide with Me!

A Lenten study through the beloved hymn “Abide with Me”
