For the kids: Dismissed after the morning offering

  • There is a Children's Church service in the basement for kids 3 years old through 2nd grade.  This service is complete with worship, teaching, and an offering that the kids make the decisions on where to use it!
  • We have a Nursery in the basement for kids birth up to age 3.
  • Treasure Seekers sheets (located in the cry room) are for all ages who wish to stay for the sermon.  Kids will just grab a sheet, follow along and fill it in.  These can be turned in, after the service, to Lance for a TS coin.  Collect your coins to be able to buy some great stuff

Our Children's Church and Nursery coordinators are always looking for additional help.  If you're interested in serving please see Reann Follum for Nursery or Dixie Berger for Children's Church.

Sunday School for all ages is at 9:30AM every Sunday in the basement of the church!

Adult Sunday School: *questions, contact Kirby Berger

This will be the adult Sunday School study starting Dec 2nd and going through February 24th.


The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship. 


In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?


Also, here is the link to the bible project overview of Mark:  Mark: the Bible Project It is a brief overview video of the book.  I always like to see what we are studying ahead of time and these videos are great for that.  If you dont have a rightnow media account, you will need one to view the videos.  Email me kaberger79@gmail.com and ask for an invite for rightnow media and I will send you one.  Just follow the directions on the invite so set up your account!

For those of you who havent been to adult Sunday School, here is what it looks like:  

Starts at 9:30 am on Sunday.  There are classes for all ages of kids as well (who will be studying something different with their teachers).

We go until 10:15, we watch a video (approx 10 min), we read scripture as a group.  Then we discuss some questions from the video and the scripture.  


Here is the link to the videos for the 11 studies in the Mark study:  Gospel of Mark: Sessions 1-11 Below is the schedule, so after you click on the link, then go to the study for that week.  We will watch these videos on Sunday mornings.  The link is in case you miss a week or want to watch in advance.


I am very excited for this study!  Francis Chan is an incredibly passionate teacher.  This study is filmed in Israel and he is actually at the very place on earth where the events of the gospel took place!  Hope to see you there!


In Christ, Kirby

In the world we live in today, there is a desperate need for life-shaking, life-changing truth.  No matter what our culture may say about truth, and our need to live by it, the Bible has the ultimate truth – to believe in and live by – and we call it The Gospel.  Many people do not share the Gospel with their family and friends simply because it has not rooted itself deep within them – they do not walk in it or live their life by it – so there really is no motivation to share it!  The Gospel is the power we have been given, as followers of Jesus, to turn this world upside down for the sake of the kingdom.  What is God’s Will for our life?  What please God?  What will advance the Kingdom of God in us and around us?  The answer to all three of those questions is found in the Gospel of Jesus, found in the Bible.  This series will take a look at what the Gospel is and how you can preach it to yourself daily and share it with everyone who needs to hear it.  It is not a method or a pattern or a program; it is a LIFESTYLE.  Join us in this series as we look to orient our lives to True North, the Gospel of Jesus.
