Sermon Notes & Recorded Messages

THE ORIGINAL CLOUD

(Hebrews 11:29–12:2) July 1976 felt like a momentous time for the people of the United States.  That month, we celebrated the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and the American Revolution it inspired. Amidst all the patriotic hoopla – the bicentennial parades and fireworks and tall ships – another revolution was taking place.  That…

THE NEED FOR CLEAN

(Isaiah 1:1, 10-20) Have you noticed that laundry detergent technology continues to change?  A hundred years ago, the charlady had a tub, washboard and bar of soap (which she might have made herself).  The mechanization of laundry advanced quickly.  Kids in the 1940s and 1950s might remember helping their moms with the laundry by feeding…

We use traditional hymns throughout the service. We have a talented pianist who adds Prelude, Offertory, and Postlude pieces to the worships service as well as a variety of special music.

At any time of year, we welcome all worshipers to come comfortably dressed, with most members choosing “business casual” attire.  However, clothes do not matter to us – the people wearing them do!
