2015 Lenten Series

Faith Lessons:  On the death and resurrection of the Messiah.  Part of “That the World May Know” video series.  Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is an in-depth video tour of the buried, distant, or otherwise forgotten places where the stores of the Bible actually happened.  From this cultural perspective, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan challenges long-held Western assumptions about even the most well-known Scripture passages.  The result?  You and your family will simply never read the Bible the same again.

Each video lesson will take place at 7-8pm at Desert Wind Middle School

March 4th Caesarea Philippi:  Gates of Hell
March 11th Mount of Olives:  The Lamb of God
March 18th Capernaum/Gethsemane:  The Weight of the World

Salsa Festival

The Salsa Festival is March 28 at Copper Sky.  We will need help in setting up, in "manning" the booth for an hour, and for breaking down.  There will be a sign up sheet in the back of the sanctuary. 


We will have a picnic immediately following the service on March 15 at Copper Sky.  Bring your favorite dish and a chair - utensils, plates, and drinks will be provided.  A fun time for all!

  • Education Committee - February 16, 2015

        Technology Fund Raiser

        Our goal is $3,000 which will allow us to add projection on Sunday mornings to be used for announcements, sermon aids, videos, etc.  The worship and music committee will decide how to use this at the traditional service.  The technology is necessary as we prepare to add a second worship service.  The costs will cover a 5,000 lumen projector, software, extra bulb, copyright licenses and other items.  Please indicate "media" on your donations.  

        Praise Worship Launch Team Needed

        We need people wishing to plan and to help launch our second worship.  Musicians are especially needed - instrumental and vocal.  If you like the music played on KLOVE, we can use your help!  Please see Pastor Glenn if you are interested.

        Council Elections

        The congregational council met on Sunday, February 15, 2015 and elected their new officers for the year:  Barbara Nybakken, president, Henry Eslinger, vice president, and Carol VanBatavia, secretary.  Congratulations to all!

        Update on Dinners 4-8

        We're off to a great start!  The groups have all met at least once and a good time was had by all.  Recently, the question arose from people who weren't around when the groups were forms as to how to become involved.  If there is anyone else who would like to be involved and has not signed up, please let Susan Bader know.  She indicated she would like to do the dinners from September-December and January-April, but there was some thought that perhaps they can be year round.  Please call Susan with any suggestions.  Her phone is 570-214-0367 and email is
