In the morning service,  we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper to remember the death of Jesus Christ which purchased our forgiveness and salvation. If you are visiting with us from a church where Christ is worshiped as the only way of salvation through His atoning death, we invite you to speak with the greeting elder about joining us at the Table.

Next Sunday (January 27, 2019), Lord willing, our services will be led by Rev. Eric Pennings who serves with the Hispanic Christian Ministry and is Dean of Students with MINTS (Miami International Seminary).
