Weekly Bible Readings

February marks the beginning of our fourth year reading through the Bible.  Like previous years, we will have a theme, a major focus around which to revolve our readings and guide us into deeper understandings of the Bible's contents.  This year we will revolve our readings around Paul's comment in Romans 13:8-10 that "love is the fulfillment of the law."  Given Paul's conviction about love's place in understanding God's law, a conviction he shared with Jesus (Matthew 22:24-40), we will use our Bible reading program for 2018 to explore love's place in understanding and obeying God's will as expressed to us in the Bible.  This year we will offer two reading schedules: one that moves through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and one that moves through the Bible chronologically.  Our readings for this week include:

                        Order of Books:               Chronologically:

  • August 12 - Proverbs 1-3                 Amos 6-9

Monthly grocery giveaway

"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat" - Matthew 25:31-46

We believe Jesus’ perfect obedience to God allows his life and teachings to show us how to truly be human, to be the people God designed us to be.  Because of our belief about Jesus’ life, we also believe that we should try to be like him.  We consequently spend time reading our Bible’s to see what kinds of things characterized his attitudes and his actions.  Even a quick reading of the Bible’s presentation of Jesus’ life reveals one consistent character - he lovingly served people.  For us to be like Jesus, we have to develop the same genuine, selfless love for people that he modeled.

Our Jesus-motivated love of the people in our community drives us to try to serve them in whatever ways we can.  So, on the second Thursday of each month, beginning at 6 pm, we offer free bags of groceries to anyone who needs them or wants them. 

Our next giveaway will be
