Parking – to avoid congestion we are requesting people to enter using the North entrance (the one by the church sign) and exit using the south gate. To alleviate crowding of our parking lot we also request our members who are willing and able to walk to use the Faith Chapel parking lot (entrance on Agate).

Adult Sabbath Schools – We have started another adult lesson quarterly class behind the organ. We will also have a Foundations Class (studying the major teachings/doctrines of the Bible) in the co-op classroom.

Evangelism Training: Do you want to have more confidence in sharing your faith with others? When you enroll in this 12-week course, you will learn practical skills on how to win people for Christ. You will learn how to engage people in meaningful conversations and to transition naturally into spiritual topics. You will discover simple and effective means to easily find Bible study interests. You will learn how to write your own Bible study, how to give it, how to answer tough questions, and how to lead someone to make decisions for Christ. You will learn how to close the proverbial back door of the church by helping new members become active disciples for Jesus. Sign up today at
