Our theme statement is:
"GATHERING, GROWING, and GIVING to GLORIFY CHRIST!"
Psalm 106:47 - II Peter 3:18 - Luke 14:33 - Hebrews 13:20,21
This statement reflects our desire to be a spiritual community where the people of God are ...
- GATHERING, both in the sense of bringing people closer to Christ as well as drawing together for encouragement and service
- GROWING, both spiritually and numerically
- GIVING, of our lives in service to Christ as well as our resources to help expand His kingdom
- GLORIFYING, we want all we do to lift up Jesus before the world.

At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.
But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.
But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?
Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?
But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
