    Remembering God’s Faithfulness
    Pastor Chris Yount continues his Sermon series- Joshua, Servant Leader and shares this week’s message entitled: “Remembering God's Faithfulness” which is based on Joshua 4:1-24.
    It's so easy to forget how much God has done for us. When we take a moment to remember we will see the loving hand of God quite often in our personal histories. Nation's will erect monuments to commemorate significant events in their history, as individuals we can do the same.
    Come join us this week as we discover ways to remember God's faithfulness!

    Soggy Sandals
    Pastor Chris Yount continues his Sermon series- Joshua, Servant Leader and shares this week’s message entitled: “Soggy Sandals” which is based on Joshua 3:1-17. Have you ever wondered if God hears your prayers? Have you wondered if maybe God has forgotten about you? Well, he hears our prayers and he doesn't forget about us, but sometimes we just need affirmation that God is still near.

    An Unlikely Hero
    Pastor Chris Yount continues his Sermon series- Joshua, Servant Leader and shares this week’s message entitled: “An Unlikely Hero” which is based on Joshua 2:1-24. An amazing attribute of God is His willingness to enlist people for His work that the world might reject. One such person was Rahab, a woman of ill repute that God not only used to bring great victory to His people but also was an ancestor of King David and Jesus. Come join us this week as we learn about this unlikely hero.

    Pastor Chris Yount continues his Sermon series- Joshua, Servant Leader and shares this week’s message entitled: “Sticks, Stones and Victory For the Lord!” which is based on Exodus 17:1-16. Too often, we think that we are in control of our lives and the lives around us. As we study the life of Joshua, we see over and again God's interruptions and interventions. These times of God "stepping in" to help or actually do the job is way of life for Joshua and all great leaders of God. Are you leaving room for God to work in your life? Come join us this week as we learn about "Sticks, Stones and Victory For the Lord!

One of the great heroes of the bible and the world is a Jewish man whose name was Hoshea or Joshua. For many years, he was Moses' devoted assistant and served Moses and Israel faithfully.
