New Bern Trip team is now full!! They’ll be off to NC in September!
See You Next Year! After much prayer and carefully watching the local health climate, we sadly came to the decision to cancel VBS for this year. It was a hard decision and now we are even more excited about next year’s VBS! We encourage you to check out our VBS webpage for free resources from Answers in Genesis to be able to have your own VBS at home!
Fishnet is Making Masks! Masks are available in 4 sizes Adult, Adult Small, Child (NEW) and Toddler (NEW) and are located outside in the Borrow a Book box. One per person, please. If you aren’t able to come to the church, please call the church and we’ll setup delivery!
Summer Office Hours are now in effect until August 17. We are open from 9am to 3pm, Monday through Friday for any needs you may have.

Women’s Open Door Bible Study – Summer Study Begins July 6 @ 8:15 PM & July 7 @ 9:30 AM – We welcome all women from all walks of life
to join us in July for another study via Zoom! While often overlooked, the Book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.  In this 7-session study from Jackie Hill Perry, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture. Study Guides are available at the church – suggested donation of $15. We look forward to growing with you!

  • Masks! Adult, Adult Small, Child, Toddler
