She Reads Truth

She Reads Truth is a worldwide organization that encourages communities of women to read God’s Word together every day. 

However, this is not just a Bible reading program, but an opportunity to individually read scripture and then come together and discuss it.  You read the specified material daily at home and then we gather together once each week.  We’ll kick off each meeting with a set of discussion questions that will open up a dialog of thoughts, understandings, ideas and revelations we have received.  Our intention in this reading format will be to understand more fully the nature of God, and not just read for reading sake.

This beautifully illustrated study guide not only contains the Bible text we will be reading, but also tear-out scripture memory cards, charts, graphs, and other additions.

The End Times and The Book of Revelation

We will examine the Book of Revelation and corresponding prophecies in both the Old and New Testaments. NO doom and gloom as we examine the glorious future of ALL believers and engage some Biblical myth-busting of some unscriptural traditional teachings. The Word of God will be the sole source of our information, avoiding speculation, supposition, theory, and conjecture. (4 semester course).

Crisis Care

Crisis Care Ministry consists of people who have a heart of compassion and a desire to serve/worship God by helping those of our congregation over rough, unexpected events that happen in their lives.  For example, we provide funeral receptions, as well as food for those just returning from a hospital stay.  Basically, we show our church family we love them every day, no matter what happens in their lives.  Obviously, our ministry doesn't meet regularly or often, but when we're needed, we're willing to help at a moment's notice if possible.  The needs are not always the same, but we're willing to help however we're needed.  If you'd like to make a difference in the lives of our church family, we'd love to have you join us!
