  • Apr 25  Midweek Bible Study
    We live in a world where real friendship is hard to find. Suspicious of others
    and insecure about ourselves, we retreat to the safety of our small, self-made
    digital worlds. Tragically, even the church can become a place that reinforces
    this isolation. Jesus models a much richer vision of friendship. Yes, it’s true:
    Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our
    lives will remain impoverished. Learn what it means to be a good friend in an
    age of judgment, isolation, and fear.  Join us on Wednesdays at 7:00pm as
    Pastor Joel leads us through this series.

  • Crisis Care Kits
    Crisis Care Kits are a cooperative effort between Nazarene Compassionate
    Ministries Incorporated and Nazarene Missions International. In times of
    devastation and disaster, people are often forced from their homes, without
    even the most basic necessities.  They often find themselves on a cot at a
    community center with nothing but the clothes on their backs.  Crisis Care Kits
    contain items such as shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, washcloths
    and other hygiene products.  The kits also include a small stuffed animal for
    children. These kits have been sent to places like Belize, Dominican Republic,
    Haiti, Jamaica, Jordon, Louisiana, Philippines, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Zambia
    and many more.  
    Thank you to everyone who donated to our collection of Crisis Care Kits!
    We filled and delivered a total of 60 kits.  They will be distributed through
    Nazarene Compassionate Ministries to families in need during times of
    disaster.  These kits also create wonderful opportunities for the gospel
    to be shared.  Your generosity is much appreciated.
