School is now over for the summer, restaurants are beginning to be able to seat at some percentage of their business. There are still many who are without work and on top of that there was a senseless taking of life of a young man and now unrest and violence everywhere. As if we needed something else to cause us fear and apprehension. But we are moving forward, hang in there. Progress is being made in society, as slow as it may be, God is working in it all to bring about good. With that being said.

    Praise the Lord we are coming back together for worship at 10:30am on Sunday mornings again. We are also beginning our Wednesday night prayer time again at 6:30pm on June 3rd and will begin again to have Sunday night service on June 7th at 6:30pm. There is still disease out there but we are moving forward in a manner as we have been advised. I know there is still a lot of fear and hesitation everywhere and so we still have to evaluate our own position. But if you feel you can, come and join us, if not then thank God for this web site and many others that are here for you.

   We are in this together, I am praying for wisdom for myself as pastor and for all those who are having to make decisions during all of this. But let's be reminded that the creator of the universe and all that is, is still God. He has not left us and has not lost any of His sovereignty, nor does He love us less. So my prayer for you is this, that our web site will be a place where you see and hear just that. That the joy of being a child of the King is still filled with unbelievable joy. That because of Jesus we have peace and can find rest in His hands. Be encouraged today and be filled with the joy that Jesus brings. Praying for all, that God will grant you protection, love, joy and peace. Thank you for opening our web page and may the King of Kings and Lord of Lords be your's today.

Pick Up and Delivery

The Governor of Florida has said for all people 65 and over, along with all those who have health issues, to stay home because of COVID 19. So we are offering to all who are in that and feel they can't get out, to allow us to buy your groceries and pick up your medicines for you. You can call our church office with your lists and we will go and buy them for you or pick them up. Our office hours are on Monday and Wednesday from 10am till 4pm and on Thursday from 10am till 12 noon. You will only need to pay from the receipt when we deliver them to you. We will also need birth date and address to pick up medicants for you. This is a free service that we are offering and it will begin on Monday March 30th. God Bless
