A word from pastor ken...

God is so Good!

In Psalm 22, the Word address God as “Holy”, and declares that He is “enthroned upon the praises of Israel.” The word for “enthroned” can be defined as “inhabits”, which informs us that God sits on His throne and inhabits the praise of His people. When we praise, we acknowledge that He is God, King, Lord, Ruler, Creator, and Worthy of our worship, our songs, our allegiance, and our lives. He is the Almighty, All-present, All-knowing God. He alone deserves our praise, our deepest devotion, our total attention.


This week, we have become mindful of how quickly life can change. We have been confronted with the frailty of our nature, and aware of our dependence upon God. Without Him, we have no hope, no power, and no future.


Today is a day of praise.

Praise Him for being a God who is always in control, and One who is never caught by surprise. El-Elyon.

Praise Him for being a loving and kind God, who watches over us, protects us, and provides. Jehovah-Jireh.

Praise Him for being a Loving Father, who never leaves us nor forsakes us. Jehovah-Shammah.

Praise Him for His kindness to us, even when we don’t deserve it.

Praise Him for being the Healer of our souls, and often of our bodies. Jehovah-Rapha.

Praise Him for being the Alpha and Omega, who has a plan that will end in eternal peace. Jehovah-Shalom.

Praise Him as David recorded in the Psalms – in His sanctuary, in His mighty expanse, for His mighty deeds, for His excellent greatness, with trumpet, harp, and lyre, with timbrel and dance, with stringed instruments, with loud cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! (Psalm 150)


It is time to praise the LORD, Let’s praise!

Volunteer & Serve

We are a congregation of believers committed to sharing the message of Christ and guiding others towards faith in Him. As a church, we aim to love those in our community with the same love Christ has given to us. The work of our church is aimed at directing others towards the Savior in the hopes that they will encounter the one true God and be transformed by His gracious love for them. Through all we do, say, and preach, we pray that we will shine the light of Christ to all those we encounter.
