Morning Worship Sermon Series


"Living and Growing in the Family of God"

January - September 2020

The Scriptures teach wisdom to God's people for every stage and relationship of our lives. Our pastors will combine their efforts to examine how to experience the joy of God's richest promises and blessings.


Morning Worship Services, 11:00 am

Dr. David G. Barker and Pastor Nicholas Hathaway



Evening Worship Service Series


"Learn Christian Contentment"

January - April 2020

How is it we may find rest for our souls? The world rages and churns in dissatisfaction, disappointment, discouragement, ... discontentment. Yet the Scriptures not only promise contentment but instruct us how we are to gain in.


Evening Worship Services, 6:30 pm

Dr. David G. Barker


"Songs of Redemptive History"

Beginning in May 2020

It is said that the Psalms are the hymnbook of God's people. But they are not the only songs of God's people as recorded in Scripture. The other places where the Scripture mentions songs and singing will guide us on a melodic journey through the ballad of God's ways with his people. From his redemption of his people in Egypt to the consummation of history in the New Jerusalem, God's ways have motivated God's worship through His wind instrument, His people.


Evening Worship Services, 6:30 pm

Adult Christian Education

Sunday mornings, 9:30 AM

The Gospel of John (cont.)

The Gospel of John was the last of the gospels to be written and it is authored by the last surviving apostle of Jesus Christ. It is different than the first three in that much of it is given to the deeper teaching of Jesus and is, therefore, worthy of its own attention. We will resume our study with chapter 8.

Christian Education Hour, 9:30 am

January - May 2020

Dr. David G. Barker


A Study Through the Book of       
        Proverbs

The wisdom of this book focuses on a variety of themes: parenting, marriage, pride, money, the tongue, etc. First, we will examine the context of biblical wisdom literature and the subject of wisdom as it is developed through the Old and New Testaments. Then, we will focus on a different theme of the book each week. Homework will be offered each week for further, personal study.

Christian Education Hour, 9:30 am

January - May 2020

Mr. Chris Maggitti & Mr. Jonathan Ceci


"Fear Not!" (cont.)

There are many places in Scripture where the appearance and message of the Lord is accompanied by fear on the part of men. Consolation in the presence of the divine seems always to lead to a calling or specific revelation which changes the course of men's lives. We will be studying these verses topically and exploring the purposes of God in the times he shows himself to his people.

Christian Education Hour, 9:30 am

             Paul's Letter to the Church in Philippi

    Wednesday Evenings, 6:30 - 7:30 pm

    Among all the letters Paul wrote to the various churches he was involved in starting and developing, the church in Philippi was special to his heart. This letter is one of great personal testimony and of encouragement to the believers. Christian men today need both - to hear how the Lord works in the lives of one another and to be bolstered in their own struggles and issues to trust in this faithful God.
