Our Current Sermon Series - LUKE’S CANON

Join us for a journey through the biblical books of Luke and Acts. To get the most out of the message each Sabbath we suggest that you read the assigned passage throughout the week.  Study  Acts 24:1-27 May 27 to June 3, and Acts 25:1-27  June 3 to June 10 to prepare for the next message in this series.

 

 Hiking Club - Sabbath, May 27, we are gathering again to fellowship and enjoy nature and God’s beauty by joining together for a hike at 2:15-2:30 in church parking lot.  Planning on walking up to John’s Rock, in the Pisgah Forest by the Fish Hatchery.  It is considered a moderate difficulty approx. 2.25 mile up and then back 2.2 mile.  The view is worth it, so join us as we take our time and enjoy the Sabbath

Potluck Luncheon - Sabbath, May 27 following the church service. Everyone welcome!

Camp Meeting - May 28-June 3, Lake Junaluska Assembly near Waynesville, NC. If you've never attended a camp meeting before, you won't want to miss this spiritual feast.

Many of our church members rent rooms or houses around the lake and stay all week. Speakers include Kameron DeVasher and John Bradshaw. Special musical guest Charles Haugabrooks.
