Our Church Family

Please remember our church family in your daily prayers at mealtimes and during your personal devotions. Continue to remember those young and old with ongoing physical, spiritual, and emotional struggles.

Congratulations to John Stol with the celebration of his birthday on January 11th and Lawrence Sackmann with his birthday on January 12th. May you both be blessed with a special day with family and friends and may you feel the nearness of God in the year to come.

Remember our missionaries around the world.

Persecuted Church


On Christmas Eve, attacks took place during two church services in northern Nigeria. This is the third year in a row that attacks have been launched against Christians in Nigeria at Christmas. Gunmen opened fire at a Church in a small village of Yobe state, killing six people, including the pastor. The church was set on fire and left several congregants seriously injured. That same night, a deacon and five other Christians were killed in Borno state. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but an Islamist terrorist group known as Boko Haram is suspected. President Goodluck Jonathan has issued a statement promising improved security for Christian communities. Please pray that God will powerfully minister healing to the injured and bereaved, and that all surviving Christians in northern Nigeria will receive an extra measure of His grace to remain faithful in the midst of persecution. Thank the Lord for His promise to remain close to the brokenhearted and to save those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18). May He impart wisdom and courage to the country's authorities as they take steps to end the violence caused by extremism.
