"It Is Well With My Soul" is a reflective hymn written in 1876. Horatio Spafford wrote this in a time of great pain in his life. The Great Chicago Fire in 1871 destroyed much of his property investments and left him broke. He was hit even harder by the economic downturn of 1873.
Ahead of a planned family trip to Europe in 1873, Spafford had to stay behind to attend to some business. He sent his four daughters and his wife ahead. Their ship collided with another vessel and sank. He received word from his wife via this short telegram: “Saved alone…”
As he later travelled to meet his wife, he was inspired to write this hymn as a painful meditation when his own ship passed over the location where his daughters lost their lives.

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our goal is to be fully devoted to Jesus as defined in the Scriptures. We strive to show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity.

Our sanctuary offers a quaint setting for your most sacred celebration. Call for rental details! During this "pandemic season", the number of guests are restricted and the CDC's guidelines for social distancing are strictly obeserved.
So excited to be back worshipping the Lord each Sunday, in person! While the Covid 19 Virus continues to be a cause of concern and caution, we believe we've learned a lot over the last two years. So, we ask everyone to practice common safety protocols. We encourage anyone with symptoms to remain at home. If you have tested positive, the CDC recommends a 5 day quarantine. Our Sunday morning service starts at 10:30am...and lasts for approximately 1 hour.

This Month's Sermons
Pastor Jerry has been ministering from God's Word on Biblical Praise. The Scriptures speak about 'Praise' more than a thousand times. Genuine praise requires the 'Prerequisite' of having accepted Christ's invitation to make him both our Savior and Lord. The "Prelude" to genuine praise is Thanksgiving...while the "Posture" of praise is diverse: singing, shouting, clapping, kneeling, lifting hands, and etc. Who should learn to praise God? The Psalmist writes "Let everything that hath breath, praise the Lord!" Join us anytime!
