When Assembling Isn’t Possible

Christ calls His church to assemble on the Lord’s Day for Bible study and worship (Hebrews 10:24,25). Under normal circumstances every Christian should make assembling with the church a high priority.

2016 Men’s Fellowship

Our First Men’s Day – A Great Success! When plans were begun for a men’s day in late January of 2016, we weren’t sure what to expect.  Even the week before the event, we still had no idea. August 27, 2016 brought abundant evidence that the day was needed and appreciated.  178 men from around…

2016 Men’s Day
