What an Incredible Morning this Past Sunday!

What a beautiful Baptism Sunday! We were able to celebrate the baptisms of cousins Kelsey Winters, Araya Elkins, Charlie Winters, and Marrissa McCormick! 


Araya and Charlie were baptized first, and then Pastor Tammy asked if anyone else might be interested in being baptized. She gave the Eden family time to think it over and invited those who had been previously baptized to come and touch the water in the baptismal font. There were many who took her invitation and spent a moment remembering their own baptism. Then Marrissa and Kelsey decided they wanted to be baptized too!

"I just want to thank all of the Eden family for all of their kindness and love," their grandmother, Sondra Valangeon, said, "and leading our family to accept Jesus for our Lord and Savior."

Thank you, Kelsey, Araya, Charlie, and Marrissa, for letting us share in your special day!

We will be having another Baptism Sunday in April! If you are interested in being baptized, please contact Pastor Tammy.

Come be with us as we prepare for the Joy of Easter!

The Chosen Season 3.jpg

Join Us this Sunday!

The Way of the Chosen is an eight week sermon series that is inspired by each episode of the show. 

Discover a faith that is more than just knowing about Jesus. The real invitation is to learn, live and love his way of life.


God gave us all the freedom to choose. We can select either the wide road that leads to destruction or the narrow path that leads to life. The third season of the groundbreaking television show, The Chosen, picks up with how Jesus' followers apply His teaching to their lives. We will all be challenged to move from knowing who Jesus is to living out our faith by going the way of the Chosen.


Who doesn't like a great travel mug, devotional, or tote bag? Nobody we know!

Join us each Sunday morning at 10:30 Worship and again on Movie Night (Thursday, April 6 at 6:30pm) for The Chosen and drawings for some fantastic giveaways from The Chosen! 

There will be slips of paper for you to put in the basket for the drawings each week, and if you don't get drawn this week, you'll still have that entry in for the next week! The more you're here, the greater your chance to win! 


See you Sunday for The Way of The Chosen!
