Sermon Series, Sunday School , and Tuesday Night Bible Study

Adult Sunday School, in the church basement The God Guarantee  This is also on Tuesday Nights starting @ 7:00 in the same location. Finding Freedom from the Fear of Not Having Enough

Do you ever suffer from the, I don’t have enough syndrome? Not enough time, energy, friendships, family support, community, faith, peace, patience, money or all the things you can personally add to this list.

During the next 5 weeks we are going to study how God desires to provide for our every need. This is a part of our 2018 Stewardship focus. A basic question for the study is this; What would life be like if I believed, trusted and lived out of faith that God will provide for my every need? Ask yourself now, do I trust God to provide for all my needs?

CHRISTMAS IS COMING……                 

Some of you just love to decorate your home for Christmas. Why not use that joy to decorate God’s house. After all, we are celebrating the birth of His son.

We are looking for volunteers to decorate three areas of the church:

  • Entry and hallway
  • Fireside Room (basement)
  • Fellowship Room (basement)

Choose one, and we have some decorations that you can use, or if you have your own ideas, you can be creative.

The decorating needs to be done anytime the week of November 26; after church on the 26th to before church on Dec.3rd.

We have volunteers for decorating the sanctuary but if you are willing to be responsible for decorating one of these other areas for Christmas, please call the church office at 419-878-3645

B&B Bible Study ( Bible and Breakfast) on Thursday mornings at 7:30 @ Dales


If you are interested in helping out with the Cherry Street Mission. Here is a link that you can access for more information.


We need Fellowship hosts. A fellowship host is responsible for setting up the fellowship hour, and cleaning up after.


We are collecting Peanut Butter Jars for the Humane Society There is a basket on the shelf by the church office. It is a nice treat for the dogs to have the un-scraped Peanut Butter Jar.

God’s Blessings to All
