Join us on Friday, March 9 at 7:00 p.m. for an evening with Michael Horton.  Tickets are FREE but you do need to register.

We live in a time when religious affiliation is on the wane, and autonomy is on the rise. People increasingly believe that they are not accountable to anyone. They begin to see themselves as the measure of all things. In such a world, there are no ultimate standards of truth, goodness or beauty, but only subjective preferences which is why many have come to believe in our day “we are what we feel.” 

Join us as Mike Horton challenges us to ask ourselves whether we too have bought into many of the beliefs and assumptions of our contemporary culture, with its stress on consumer preference and individual autonomy. This message of hope reorients our hearts and encourages us to raise our eyes to heaven. 

Author's Forum with Dr. W. Robert Godfrey: April 13, 2018


Dr. W. Robert Godfrey will be our guest for a special Author’s Forum on Friday, April 13.  Join us for an excellent lecture on the Psalms and a time for Question and Answer to follow.

The Psalms are undeniably beautiful. They are also difficult, and readers often come away convinced that tremendous riches remain just beyond their grasp. In his book “Learning to Love the Psalms”, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey invites us to journey with him towards a greater understanding and love for these sacred verses. The timeless elegance of the Psalms, their depth of expression, and testimony to the greatness of God have enchanted and edified God's people for centuries. Learning to Love the Psalms is intended to help today's Christians share in that delight.

We have also nominated the following four men as candidates: John Bejarano, David Gill, Dennis Nichols and Jeff Phillips to fill the (3) three-year terms for the office of deacon, to replace Thayne DeVorss, Jeff Gray and John Woodward who are rotating off council.  At our congregational meeting on February 18, Lord willing, we will elect three new elders and three new deacons to be ordained to their offices and thereby serve Christ's church in this capacity.

Adult Sunday School: January 14-March 4, 2018

Yi Wang 2017 v2.JPG

A new 8 week Adult Sunday School series on Covenant Theology begins January 14, 2018 at 9 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  Mr. Yi Wang, a senior Westminster Seminary California student will be teaching this class. Covenant theology is a unique theological heritage from the Reformed churches since the day of Reformation. It is not only a significant Biblical concept, but an important interpretative framework to understand the flow of redemptive history. This series on Covenant theology surveys through the three overarching covenants, namely, Covenant of Redemption, Covenant of Works and Covenant of Grace, and the major biblical covenants such as Noahic Covenant, Abrahamic Covenant, Mosaic Covenant, Davidic Covenant, and finally the New Covenant. This study will help you better understand the Bible as a whole, but more importantly, it will help you appreciate more the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
