Philippians: Finding Joy
COVID-19 has disrupted life in both beneficial and unsettling ways. For some, a more relaxed pace, extra time with family, and margin to pursue hobbies have been a blessing. For others, isolation, the loss of employment or income, cabin fever, and the threat of illness have been very stressful. The Book of Philippians, written by the Apostle Paul from prison, is a powerful reminder that God offers peace and joy, no matter our circumstances.
Join us on Sundays at 9:30 & 11am as we pursue joy together.

Personal Bible Study Tips
Bible reading is a crucial part of knowing God and living for Him. We read scripture not just to learn facts or find great quotes, but to internalize it to the point that it guides our thoughts, attitudes, and actions. The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16-17: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God’s Word is designed to tell us the truth; confront our sin; show us what’s right; and equip us to live for God. We cannot be the people God calls us to be without regular intake of scripture. To make personal Bible reading a habit, we have to develop a plan. Here are a few practical ideas to help you do that.
