Thank You We would like to thank you all for everything you have done for us throughout Jason's ordeal. We are not quite finished yet as he will have to have another surgery in a couple of months to coil/repair the other aneurysms in his brain. God has absolutely heard all of our prayers and is so good all of the time. We have seen him at work in this situation and it has been so amazing. He has not only shown us miracles throughout Jason's illness but has shown us the love of our church family and we cannot even begin to express our gratitude, appreciation and love for you all. Thank you all again from the bottom of our hearts! -With Love, The Cox Family.


Thank You With a grateful heart I want to thank my church family for the many acts of kindness to me after my knee surgery.  They tell me I am doing well and I hope to be back worshipping with you soon.  Ella Fisher

Have You Had Enough?

Does it concern you that it seems many of our young church members seem to choose to not be active Seventh-day Adventist members after they graduate?

Have you looked around the church when the academy students are gone and think what will happen to this church in the future?  Is there something we can do to reach out to our youth so they see the seriousness of current events and feel valued and needed by the church?

I was present when Dwight Nelson gave a sermon on Aug. 17, 2019 title “Break Through the World Changers Secret”. (Dealing with generation “Z” ages 13-24.)  Watch it, I spoke with him after the sermon.

From Dwight Nelsons sermon, and speaking with Kenny Shelton from 3ABN at Louisville, KY ASI meeting, I want to share with you, a ministry I have decided to be involved  with.  I hope you will too.!

Let’s talk about it Sunday evening, Oct. 27, at

 7:00 p.m. at the church.  Mark your calendar and please attend.
