Our Daily Devotionals
Advent Series--The Radical Yes of Christmas

Join us on Facebook and YouTube for our daily devotionals, Monday through Friday, at 9 AM.  You can tune in then or find it later in the day, week, or previous weeks.  Heretofore, our devotionals and our weekly sermon have had the same theme, but we've decided to go deeper and take a new approach with our current devotional series, "The Radical Yes of Christmas," for a 4-week series that covers these topics:

  • Advent Week 2: December 7-11- Facing Your Fear
  • Advent Week 3: December 14-18- Trusting your God
  • Advent Week 4: December 21-25- Letting Love Lead You

    We hope that you can take advantage of hearing and meditating on the Word of God daily with this deeper look into the treasure that is the Bible.

Zoom Prayer Meeting

We do have a couple of families in our church body who are struggling with hard health situations.  We want to join together to come alongside of them and pray for healing and restoration.  

Jacob Armenta is still in the hospital battling an E-Coli infection.  

Annette Grable is in the hospital after having surgery in her digestive system.  The doctor said he couldn't be happier with her progress, but she will have a long recovery.  

Sally O'Connor tested positive for Covid-19.  We want to cover her in prayer so that her symptoms do not get worse and for protection for the rest of the household.

If you are able, please join us via Zoom to pray together THIS FRIDAY, December 4 at 7 PM.
