Our Vision: “Know Christ, Live Christ, Share Christ”

The people of our church have a vision! We have a vision that begins with the faithfulness of those who have preceded us. We have a vision that emerges from our desire to be inspired and effective followers of Jesus Christ. We have a vision that grows in our hearts as we commit to serve him together.

Bible Study

Our church has a wonderful Bible Study group that generally meets every 4th Tuesday of the month from fall through spring.
We are a very friendly and somewhat informal group of folks that just love to get together to read and learn from God's word.
We would be so pleased if you would join us to share thoughts, questions, and insights concerning the teachings of our Lord.

“Ask and it will be given you;

search, and you will find;

knock and the door will be opened.” Luke 11:9

What are some of the things you could ask for? (ice cream, short sermon, day off from school or

work, good weather for your picnic) Is Jesus right? If you ask for something you’ll get it? Does God

give us everything we want? Why not? Or does God give us what we need? What are some of the

things God would be eager to give? What are some things God might not be eager to give?

“Ask and it will be given you;

search, and you will find;

knock and the door will be opened.” Luke 11:9

Dear God, when we don’t even ask, how can you know what we need? When we won’t even start

looking, how can you begin to lead us to where we need to go? When we won’t lift a hand to knock, how

can you know which door to open for us? Of course, if our salvation depended on ourselves we would

be stuck – endlessly. But that’s not how it is with you. You take the first steps when we’re afraid to

walk. You’re always taking the initiative when we’re slow to get started. You’re already underway when

we’ve barely moved. And before we reach the doorknob you’re already opening the door. Our prayer

is simple: give us the strength and hope to walk through that door! We’re praying in Jesus’ name.

We’re celebrating Communion on Sunday. Please join us at the table, there’s always room for one


Dear God, You know that we come to this table from many different directions. Some of us were at

the head of the line from the start. Some of us have had to work long and hard through many

obstacles and distractions to find our way here. Some of us come out of curiosity, wondering what

you might have to offer. Some of us come because nothing else has worked, and we are desperate.

Some of us come with lots of love to share. Some of us come filled with worries and anxieties. Some

of us come, having been here countless times before. Some of us are here for the first time. How we

got here is not as important as the fact that we are here, ready to receive from you like never

before. Come quickly, Lord Jesus! Amen.

Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said, “what must I do to inherit eternal

life?” Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” The lawyer answered,

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your

strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And Jesus said to him, “You have

given the right answer; do this, and you will live.” [Luke 10:25-26]

Questions to prepare for Sunday worship:

Do you love your neighbors?

[a] Yes!

[b] No!

[c] Some of them yes, some of them no.

[d] It depends on what you mean by “love”

How do we define the meaning of “neighbor”?

[a] Someone who lives next door

[b] Someone whom I know

[c] Someone like me

[d] Anyone and everyone

Psalm 96 –

this Sunday we have two special events in one at worship – a celebration of Sunday School, and a celebration of high school and college graduates. The preaching theme comes from Psalm 96, “Tell”. So one part of the message is to encourage our young friends to find the voice they need to tell the story in the wider world of what they have learned by being a participant in our church. The second part is to ask everyone in our church to think of a one sentence piece of wisdom or advice they could tell someone who is graduating. What advice would you give, based on your faith and experience so far in life? Tell us!

Psalm 96 – The theme we are going to lift up on Sunday is from this Psalm, “Tell”. So can you remember a time, recently or in the past, when you had something important to tell? Not just anything, but something really important to tell! What are the symptoms of eagerness to tell a story? Crashing into the conversation others may have been having? Faster heart beat? Running out of breath and words as the story spills out? Wild hand gestures to accompany your story?

I remember Sandra P., who would burst into the youth group room after school and would launch into her dramatic story of the day. It always went something like this: “You guys, you won’t believe what happened!” After getting the full attention of everyone in the room, she would go into every last incredible detail, in a blow-by-blow style, something like “then she said … and then I said … then she goes … and then I go …” all the way to the dramatic conclusion, which often ended with something like “and then the teacher sent me to the principal’s office!”.

As Christians we have a story to tell, but do we ever tell that story like Sandra did? I think we’re often too quiet, and think our story unimportant. Sandra had everyone’s attention. What story would you, could you, tell about Jesus, about God, or anything else about your faith that would get the attention of others? Tell us!

Hi Folks, Tue, Jun 7th will be your last chance to join us for Bible study until Fall. Hopefully we can explore some things to meditate on during the summer months to keep us growing in our faith, living our faith more fully, and receiving God’s blessings that He gives so freely.
The summer can seem like a somewhat “dry” season for the church. There is no Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost or other major Christian event or season to celebrate, look forward to, or otherwise focus on! What are we to do?
That’s exactly what we will be talking about. What season are we in – what do you know about it – what should we be doing -- and, for extra credit, what is it’s color?
To help us with this we will be reading Psalm 146 and learning a little about the Psalms in general as well.
Give this all a little thought, or maybe even research, and come share with the rest of us. God gives us the Bible to guide us but you are the vessels he uses to teach us. Please come.!
