Come and find the quiet center in the crowded life we lead. 

Our guest speaker this Sunday is our good friend, Lisa Whitaker who works with Youth With A Mission (YWAM).  Lisa spent this past week with the community VBS as their daily mission speaker.  Lisa will be speaking from 2 Kings 6:8-23

Providing special music will be the Holland family, a talented family trained on a variety of musical instruments.  Mr. Jonathan Holland is the director of the music department at Pilgrim Academy.

God-shaped Vacuum

"There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every person, and it can never be filled by any created thing. It can only be filled by God, made known through Jesus Christ."
