Worship

Sunday Sermon

There's a lot of ugliness in the way the world goes these days. Have you ever considered that perhaps Jesus has called us as His body to display His glorious beauty in the midst of an ugly world?  A beauty that draws people, while repelling others, to find their greatest joy in King Jesus. This Sunday our message is titled, "Display a Revolting Beauty" based Matthew 5:1-20.

Altar Flowers

In celebration of Rick & Colleen Dierolf's 44th Anniversary!
