The Where Is God Series

Where Is God? Maybe you have asked this question before, or maybe you have asked it with a specific phrase on the end – “when I need him”, “in the midst of this chaotic world”, etc. During the Easter Season, which began last week and continues through the end of May, we are going to explore these questions each week in a our series called “Where Is God?” All of the messages will look at a specific way that God is revealed to us, and it will point us towards a deeper understanding of God’s presence in our world and in our lives.


Start Here

Also this Sunday, we are launching a five-week Sunday evening group that will explore the basics of the faith and the church. If you have ever sat in church and thought, “I don’t get this stuff at all” then this group will be perfect for you! This will provide a group opportunity for those that come to the 5pm Service, as it will meet immediately afterwards in the New Beginnings Room (approximately 6:15pm – 7:15pm).

“When Doubt Touches Faith”

He replied, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands, put my finger in the wounds left by the nails, and put my hand into his side, I won’t believe.” These are the infamous words of “Doubting Thomas” shortly after the resurrection, as recorded in the 20th chapter of John. Thomas gets a bad rap for his doubts, but whether you are a lifelong Christian, a new believer or currently a skeptic, we all can probably relate to his desire to see a little bit of proof before believing. Questions of doubt and faith abound, and this week we will dive even deeper into our series question of “Where Is God?”, as we explore Thomas’s story and how it intersects our own.

Sunday Schools


Christian Heritage

Beginning Sunday April 23d, we are studying "God Loves You: He always has, He always will" by Dr. David Jeremiah.  Love is one of the most written-about subjects in all of human history.  The Bible offers one truth about love not found anywhere else.  It is not a definition, but a way to measure love--a way to compare it to something permanent and perfect.  This study will focus on 10 dimensions of love as manifested  by the God who is love.  Join us!


Ed Louge

Originally named “Issues & Answers”, we  have lively discussions about the Old and  New Testaments. We study God’s word by  studying directly from the Bible.   We are located on the second classroom on the left  when you enter the Church’s Administrative Wing.


New Beginnings

What is God Like? For A. W. Tozer, there is no question more important. In fact,  Tozer's desire to know God and His fullness consumed his  entire life and ministry. Originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in  Chicago, this first volume of The Attributes of God examines  ten attributes of God. Steeped in Scripture and filled with the Spirit, Tozer preached  with striking clarity and power. The sense of his sermons  comes through on every page, bringing the Word of God to  bear upon you


Pilgrim Class

The Pilgrim Class continues the Wondering through the Bible.  This is an in depth study done with humor and light refreshments. We have breakfast every 5th Sunday.  Everyone is welcome and there is no age requirement. We meet down the hall from Fellowship Hall.



In this class we are real, we make mistakes, we say I'm  sorry, we give second chances, we have fun, we give  hugs, we forgive, we do really loud really well, we are  patient, we love. We use various series of short-term books and videos  that are grounded in scripture to help us grow as  Christian disciples. The Seekers are led by Woody Davis.  All are welcome to visit any time, we’d love to have you!  Our class motto is “Love Wins!” and all God’s children  said amen.  GRACE HAPPENS HERE! We are located on the last classroom before the  Fellowship Hall


Wesley Fellowship

We meet in the second room  on the right down the hall from the office entrance.   Don Schall teaches the class described as an excellent lesson "mini  sermon" each week.   We study the Adult Bible Studies, an official resource for The United  Methodist Church approved by the General Board of Discipleship and  published by Cokesbury.  Come join us each Sunday ... You will be glad you did.
