From Pastor Toensing

Dear Fellow Saints: We have received such wonderful cards and gifts from you that have been a blessing for us this Christmas. God has truly been good to us—me and my family and our whole family of believers in Christ. It is because of God’s grace in Jesus that we find our common peace, joys, and blessings. Thank you for your love and generosity as we praise God from Whom all blessings flow. -Pastor and Shelley Toensing

Sunday Bible Class

Join us on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for adult Bible class where a variety of Christ centered topics are covered.

Jesus Christ brings the Gospel (from older English, "Good-spel," "good news") to the world. He announces that in His person the kingdom of God has come to mankind and that through faith in Him people might find new and eternal life. He is Himself the Good News, or Gospel.
