The irresistible love of God revealed through the Cross of Jesus!
What actually took place on the Cross of Jesus that most Christians do not understand and it results in backsliding. Once you see the Cross through the eyes of the New Testament writers - you will not be the same.....
Do not miss the inspiring testimonies and revival messages ! 
Come to be blessed by these messages that will bring tears to your eyes, inspiration and joy to you and your families.  This will make you fall in love with Jesus all over again!
Invite your friends, so they may discover how deep, relevant and heart warming the Advent message is!

Sabbath School has long been an integral part of the spiritual growth of our church, especially the children.  It provides an environment for Bible study, children’s learning, interaction, and discussion.  Children often miss most of Sabbath School due to family challenges on Sabbath mornings.
To help families, the church board voted to approve to move Sabbath School to 10:00 AM for a trial period of 3 months to see if this will increase attendance by both children and adults and better serve our members.
9:30 AM – 9:55 AM will serve as a time for “Congregational Season of Prayer” –
Everyone is invited to come into the sanctuary for prayer.
10 am- 10:55am  Sabbath School
11 am -12:15/30  Worship service. We will work to adjust the worship service schedule accordingly to still end at a timely manner.

It is our goal for every single member and regular attender of our church to be involved in a ministry in 2016! It is a blessing to serve the Lord and we have learned from years past that we can never out-give Him when we worship Him with our time, talents and offerings!
Everyone is invited to BLESS the Lord in being part of our weekly potluck-style Fellowship Lunchthe largest and most consistent ministry of our church led by Danett Guy.  When else can we mingle and meet new friends? When else can we feed weary travelers, college students craving home cooked meals and meet walk-ins from our community?
3 Action Items Requested:
1)      If you are not involved in this ministry, pls email Juliet Santos, at 
There are 5 groups that will be in charge of bringing food in addition to what others will bring each Sabbath. The leaders/co-leaders and support team members will all work together to ensure that our potluck-style fellowship lunches have plenty of nourishing foods and enough support staff to manage the lunch from beginning to end. Each group includes members, regular attenders, men, women, singles, couples, adults, young adults, some youth, and church leaders.
2.   We have confirmed the list and have printed the names of those involved.  Calendar your dates to bring food and participate in this ministry! Again, if your name is not on the list, let us know and we will add you to a group. If you are unable to cook, you can still help by supporting the kitchen activities. Thank you in advance for blessing the Lord through your service!
3)      Meet people! This ministry is not just about eating….it’s also about meeting and greeting people! This is the time to invite people to your Small Groups, to your home, to prayer groups, and to simply get to know them!
