We are a community of people whom believe that all our hope is found not in what we do for God, but what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. His love and grace is foundational for all we do in worship in our ministries and for how we live with one another. We hope you will experience that same love and grace along with us.

A word from Pastor Mark

From Pastor Mark …

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.”
Acts 1:8-9

Whether we meet face to face in a building or we continue being “socially distant”, the Church remains a spiritual body of believers who live and serve in this world.

This week we remember the Ascension of Christ. Even though Christ has ascended bodily into heaven, he remains with us still by his Spirit. In the online sermon this week, we will consider this event in light of the ascension of the prophet Elijah (II Kings 2) and the story of the ascension of Jesus (Acts 1). In the “Family Study Guide” you will also find what the Heidelberg Catechism says are the three benefits for us from the Ascension.

We continue to be encouraged during this time of distance through the knowledge that we belong to God in Christ. We also continue to reach out to one another. Thank you for all you are doing to help each other.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."
