Her life is simple and free. She is devoted to her lumberjack father and loves her country life where she can run through the forest and on to the shore.

UNRAVELING REVELATION – SUNDAYS, 9 AM

If there’s one book of the Bible that people have questions about or don’t understand, it’s the very last book, the Book of Revelation.  It’s become quite popular to read it in such a way as to try to unlock the secrets to the future, but doing so actually robs the book of its true power and import.  Revelation isn’t so much about the future as it is a field guide to dissident discipleship in the here and now.  Join us for Sunday School each Sunday as we seek to Unravel Revelation.

WEDNESDAY PRAYER – WEDNESDAYS @ Noon

Please join us on Wednesdays at noon for a time of prayer in the sanctuary as we bring our needs before our loving God.

MISSION FOCUS FOR MAY: HELPING HANDS

Our mission focus for the month of May is Helping Hands of Amherst County which help citizens of Amherst County who need an occasional helping hand with necessities such as food, electric bills, rent and water bills when children or medical needs are present.  It is administered out of Madison Heights Baptist Church. You may make a donation by specifying ‘Helping Hands’ on your check memo line.
