Children's Bible Class - 3:00 PM
The Bible Study class for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through our Bible Study for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
Adult's Bible Class - 4:00 PM (A hour later during Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Our Adult Bible Study is on Sabbaths (Saturdays) about 4:00 PM during Eastern Standard Time (EST) or an hour later during the Daylight Saving Time (DST) . Generally it is conducted by one of our pastors, an elder or a specially invited guest presenter. For Bible Study the focus may be on a specific course of study ( Prayer, Forgiveness, Marriage, Prophecy, etc) or a Bible event or a certain Bible passage. In all cases the purpose of Bible Study is to give us a better understanding of God's love for man, His orgiveness, understanding of our Salvation, life's issues - death, marriage, health or how to better share the Gospel with others and living a life consistent with God's will for us. It is also a good time for those contemplating Baptism to better understand the Bible and be knowledgable of the eternal decision they desire to make. The more we study it together and alone under the guidance of the Holy Spirit the more we understand God's amazing love, we strenghten our faith, we are better prepared to share it with others and build strong Christian characters. This worship service concludes with prayer.

06:00 AM Early Morning PrayerEarly Morning Prayer
Our Early Morning Prayer service is an opportunity for coming together to strenthen each other and begin the new week with the promises of God. It is informal, no ties or "Sunday best" is required. It is a casual moment of worship via prayer, singining and exhortations. We begin at 6:00 AM on Sundays and the entire service is just an hour to hour and a half. Rising early to meet with others and God is a refreshing morning experience. The Bible in Mark 1:35 tells us that "Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed." Jesus rose early in the morning to have time to talk with this Father.
