Message Series

This Sunday @ 9am & 10:30am, Pastor Rusty will be continuing the message series titled, Life by Design - A Study in Proverbs. Life is to be lived according to the design and wisdom that God has provided in His Word. Proverbs is God’s book to us that sets forth how to live life successfully as one walks the path of wisdom and rejects the way of folly, foolishness and evil doing. Proverbs depicts the imagery of a person at the crossroads with one path leading to life and the other path leading to a life of trouble, shame, disappointment, bondage and ultimately life destruction. At the crossroads, God is inviting people to follow the roadmap of wisdom. Let your ears be attentive and your heart be open to the voice of truth that begs you to follow the roadmap, read the signs carefully and stay on the right path. Learn to Live a Life by Design with us!
