from pastor Jim

Bibles and hymn books are no longer available for our worship services. That is a wise decision as we deal with the COVID pandemic.

That means we need to make adjustments. The words for the hymns, choruses, readings, and prayers are printed in the bulletin.

But what should we do about the Bible readings?

Here’s my #1 suggestion: bring your Bible with you. There will be plenty of time given for you to find the passages.

Here’s #2: read the passages before coming to the worship service. The Responsive Reading comes from Psalm 118. The Old Testament Reading is Isaiah 25:7-9. The New Testament Reading is 1 Corinthians 15:1-8. The sermon will use Luke 24:36-48 and 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 as guides.

Sunday, April 4, is the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Get ready for a blessed Lord’s Day.

Pastor Jim

PS – Bring a lawn chair with you for the Sunrise Service. See you Sunday.



 You are invited to observe Lent with a new study on Zoom beginning Wednesday February 24.  Bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings participants a landmark work that considers the Ten Commandments in their historical context, unpacks how Jesus reinterpreted them, and shows how every "Thou Shalt Not" was intended to point to a life-giving "Thou Shalt".

Contact Letha to sign up or to ask questions. Text or call 208-412-9029 or email to join the Zoom study each Wednesday 10:30 am to 12: noon. 
We would enjoy having you join us.
