Volunteers are at the Welcome Center to assist you with any needs or questions you may have.
Sermon - Brian Overholt
Is God Really There?
Word From the Preacher
Trying to make a case for the existence of God to a skeptical world can feel like shining the light of God’s truth into the eyes of the spiritually blind. We cannot make the blind see Him or the deaf hear him…but we must proclaim him nevertheless. Here is a good place to start.

Women’s Bible Studies
Women in the Word
New study begins April 1st and continues through May 20th.
Study Name: Chosen By God, Author: R.C. Sproul
Cost: $20 for materials
Thursday nights 6:45 to 8:30 PM, Room 224. Led by Patty Berger.
How does it make you feel to know that God‘s choice of salvation for you was in place before the world began? Wonderful, right? His pre-destined grace as shown in our salvation is far reaching and touches our lives in many tangible ways. Despite its impact, predestination isn’t always easily understood, viewed as perhaps a bit archaic or beyond our ability to understand. Not so! This is a biblical doctrine each one of us should give thought to. Join us for this seven week study as we open Gods Word to gain a clear understanding of the doctrine of predestination – not whether God predestinates, but how He predestinates.
Questions? Contact Patty Berger at email@example.com

'All About God' Ministries
Jim Kalac, our missionary who represents the World-wide Internet outreach of All About God Ministries, reports that while millions of gospel presentations were made available to seekers this past year, censorship by Google resulted in a drop of traffic by nearly 44%.
Yet, even with this drop many, many, youth…worldwide…are seeking the truth of God’s Word and amazingly the predominant feature of these youth is that they are in bondage to various cults and experience Spiritual Warfare on a daily basis. One such example is that of a twenty-year old girl who said, “I just want truth!” Of course, this is a world-wide plea and goes on daily through searches which surface on the All About God website.
Please pray that our Lord would make available His Word through this ministry and especially console and transform the souls of many who, like us all, are disturbed by the spiritual warfare that is so prevalent in our country and worldwide!
