Pastor James Resumes His Determined Series from The Book of Nehemiah This Sunday

When we left the Determined series for our Revival emphasis, Nehemiah had completed what God had called him to do!  The walls of Jerusalem were rebuilt, but the most important thing Nehemiah needed to do was have a good follow through.  Rebuilding the walls of the city was easy compared to what was next for Nehemiah.  Through God's help he needed to rebuild the people!  For years the Jews had been scattered and in captivity.  They were now returning to their home with many different life experiences.  This is much like the church today.  What was Nehemiah's next move?  Don't miss the closing sermons of this series!  We hope to see you in worship on Sunday @ 10:30 am.

Homeland Park Fire Department Help Our Church Remember Fallen Firefighters.

Thank you to Homeland Park Fire Department for helping us to honor and pray for those who have died in the line of duty during this "Bells Across America" weekend.  There are many families today missing loved ones because they put their needs aside for someone else.  We appreciate everything you do to keep us and our community safe.

Thank You To HartStrings For Leading In Worship Last Sunday

Thank you HartStrings for blessing us through your music and ministry last Sunday evening.  Your testimonies through song and harmony boldly proclaimed the gospel of Jesus.  May God continue to bless you and we hope to have you back soon.
