Unreasonable Faith: Genesis 12:1-4

It seems logical to me that after dwelling with Noah for the last several weeks, we keep going sequentially through Genesis and arrive at the narrative of Abram (who will become Abraham).  That makes sense.  What does not make sense is moving your family when you are 75 years old to some undisclosed location with nary a peep from Abram.  He does not seem concerned about the destination or the length of time it will take to get there.  He just packs up household, puts the family into the camel roadster, and off he goes.


Simple, right?    Read More

We will continue our Easter Celebration by recognizing our Sunday School Teachers and offering gift Bibles to our 3rd graders and youth.  We also conclude our sermon series on the book of John by dwelling in John 21:15-19, click here to read the passage before you come to church.  We hope you will join us in worship and bring a friend!  All are welcome here: whoever you are and wherever you are on life's journey.
