Since our church's website has fallen into disrepair, we have opted to take it off-line for the time being. The domain will be redirected to this facebook page.

I saw many notices this morning of Billy Graham's passing. This one, I believe, captured the gist of his life the best:

Like many of you, I am deeply saddened to hear news of the death of Billy Graham today. He was a friend, a colleague, and mentor to me, and I will miss him dearly.

I just heard from Dr. Cornett. Kirsten has some nasal congestion. He's asking for prayers.

We were recently blessed by the preaching of Pastor Benny Stiltner who is planting this church. Here's an opportunity to support his work in person.

Alistair has invited Christopher Ash and Tim Savage to join him for the 2018 Basics Conference, which will take place May 7-9, 2018 at Parkside Church in Chagrin Falls, OH. Go back and listen to previous years in the archive.

All the forecasts for tomorrow are pretty bad, with afternoon and evening being the worst. So, we're going to cancel our Bible Studay and prayer meeting.
Stay safe and stay home.

Good morning. Looking ahead for the week, please keep you eyes on this page as the weather may have us cancel our Wednesday evening prayer and Bible Study. Bad weather and night driving don't really go well together. We'll have an announcement out by 2 PM tomorrow.

Dr. Robertson is the head of the Baptist Convention of NY. He's a great man, doing a great work with a great organization. He's also a great speaker.

Looking back/looking forward
Last Sunday we held our annual business meeting, conducted in a manner as a church should do business: decently and in order. Many thanks to Linda Wegner for keeping the business of the church on track and doing a diligent job as clerk. Also thanks to Liz Knapik for her work in assembling the annual report packet so we can all see what we're doing. We also thank those who labor to put the budget, benevolence budget and respective reports together the body can see what has been happening with the respective sub-groups of the church.
Looking into the year ahead, we have some exciting ministry opportunities open to us, reaching into our community and beyond.
For the immediate future, Wednesday evenings we continue our study in GREAT MOMENTS IN THE CHURCH, a quick overview of the book of Acts and the spread of the church. Sunday mornings we have a ladies' Bible study in Romans and a men's study in the general epistles. Pastor's message series is a pastoral study of the book of Revelation. We make no attempt to answer all the questions; but give application of this great book to our daily lives.
