2019 Confirmation Class Creed
We believe that God is the creator of the earth, and he is the light throughout all of the darkness.  In times of doubt, we can always count on God because he is always with us.  Whenever you need God’s presence, he is just a prayer away!  He is an Almighty God, who sacrificed his son on a cross for the forgiveness of our sins.  After what he has done for us, all he asks is for us to worship him and spread his word.  After all, he is the one that made us and takes great care of us.  Throughout everything we go through in life, he performs miracles and healings that can seem impossible.

VBS 2019, which will be held June 23rd thru June 27, is on it's way, so get ready to

  “Come on down and visit the farm!”

In “Farm Fresh Faith,” everyone learns God’s faithfulness to Joseph, and His faithfulness to us, too.
Joseph’s life story - his dreams, obedience, patience, confidence, and provision - in Genesis chapters 37 to 45 are the key Scriptures for this VBS. The five daily lessons highlight God is faithful:
- to keep His promises.
- to give us the strength to obey Him.
- to have a plan for me in His time.
- never to forget us.
- to care for me.

 “Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.”
Psalm 36:5 (KJV).
