Child dedication

The word "dedication" means "to consecrate" or the act of setting apart people or things to serve God. In the Old Testament, we see how Hannah prayed for a child and promised God that the child, Samuel, would be given to the Lord all the days of his life (1 Samuel 1:11, 28). In the New Testament, we see how Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the temple to "present" Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22).

A Child Dedication service is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their intent to raise their child in a way that honors God.  In many ways a "child dedication" service is truly a "parent dedication" service, as parents publicly declare to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ. 

Home or hospital visit

We seek to extend the love, comfort and compassion of Jesus Christ to those who have been admitted to the hospital or confined to their homes. If you would like to request a hospital or home visit, please complete the Hospital/Home Visitation Request Form.

We are reminded of the Jesus' teaching in Matthew 25:35-40  

Pastoral Counseling

We provide Christ-centered, Biblically focused pastoral counseling to help find direction in our lives.  It's free of charge for members and regular attendees in need of these services. We are not therapists, psychologists, or social workers, but specifically pastoral counselors who counsel from the Word of God. 

Premarital Counseling

Premarital counseling help couples understand and plan for a marriage, NOT A WEDDING, which will glorify God. It also helps couples set reasonable expectations. It helps build a solid, biblical foundation for marriage. Much time will be devoted in Scripture to learn how biblical ideas apply to marriage.
It helps couples begin a dialogue. Topics like communication, finances, intimacy, as well as parenting, need to be discussed before the commitment of marriage.
 It prepares couples for the marriage, and not just the wedding day. Couples can have a tendency to focus on the wedding day and not on the marriage.
It helps the couple examine personal convictions, expectations for their future and responsibilities they will have. More than anything, premarital counseling aims to produce a marriage that is biblical and God-honoring.

Water Baptism

Water baptism is not a personal choice, but a command for believers. Jesus established water baptism as an ordinance when He gave the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:19 NLT) “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”, (Mark 16:16 NLT) “Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.”

Water baptism is a public, outward testimony that indicates a personal, inward faith. It gives evidence of the inner change that has already occurred in the believer's life when he or she was "born again" through faith in Jesus Christ.
