A Lenten Journey

     Lent is an invitation for us to live our lives differently.  This year's Sunday morning Lenten series is based on Adam Hamilton's, "In the Garden."   The Bible begins in a garden where God creates Paradise. At the heart of the gospels is another garden, the garden of redemption.  Jesus suffers, dies and is buried in a garden, but on the third day he emerges from the tomb, conquering sin and death. The Bible ends in a garden. Revelation 22 paints a picture of the saints dwelling with God in a restored Paradise. In this series, we discuss these and other gardens in the Bible.



Join us every Sunday Morning at 10:15AM as we journey toward Easter.

Children’s Sunday School is offered every Sunday morning

An Invitation

Christ Jesus invites us to take this Lenten Journey with him, so that each one of us might consider what it means to be his follower.




         Commit yourself to Christ as his servant.  Give yourself to him that you may belong to him.  Christ has many services to be done.  Some are more easy and honorable; others are more difficult and disgraceful.  Some are suitable to our inclinations and interests.  Others are contrary to both.  In some we may please Christ and please ourselves, but then there are other works where we cannot please Christ except by denying ourselves.  


Grace & Peace,


Rev. Dr. Donald N. Hurley



We celebrate a blended style of worship.  

That simply means that we blend traditional hymns with contemporary choruses.  

We honor our theological heritage

while intentionally seeking

to reach this generation

through the use of multimedia in worship.

 Small Group Study


Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
     A spiritual formation group encourages individuals to focus on deep questions such as:
     How is God working in my life?
     How am I being formed in the likeness of Christ?
     What practices will open me to God's leading?

* You will explore the depths of scripture, learn to listen to God through it, and allow your life to be shaped by the Word.
* You will experience new dimensions of prayer, try fresh ways of opening to God, and learn what it means to practice the presence of God.
*You will reflect on Christ's call in your life and discover anew the gifts that God is giving you for living out your personal ministry.
*You and members of your group will grow together as a Christian community and gain skills in learning how small groups in the church become settings for spiritual guidance.
