Sundays in the summer, beginning with Memorial Day weekend (May 28th), we will be having one 10 AM worship service. Labor Day weekend (September 3rd) will be our final summer service at 10 AM.

When He ascended to heaven, Jesus was seated on His throne to reign as King. Do you realize that we as believers are also seated with Jesus on heaven's throne? If that's so, what does this mean for the way we live and pray each day? This Sunday we continue our series, Your Divine Heavenly Status, with the message, "Reigning with Jesus on the Throne!" based on Psalm 8 and Ephesians 2:1-10.

Celebrate Dan Bush's 70th Birthday!
