Beginning 05/10/2020, we will be holding socially-distanced worship services at 10am and 6pm.  Per order of the Governor of Alabama, all attending families must sit at least 6' from each other.  Furthermore, our building capacity will be limited to 200 persons, which is less than 50% of our normal capacity of 570.  As soon as the COVID-19 danger has passed, our plan is to resume normal worship services as quickly as possible.  Please watch this banner, as well as our FaceBook page, for more information as it develops.  To reach us directly, please email or phone us and one of the elders or deacons will get back with you as quickly as possible (contact information is below).

Introduction to the Pastor's Blog

We live in the valley of the shadow of death (Psalm 23:4; 107:10-11). Most of us fill our lives with fleeting pleasures whose glitter masks the shadows (Hebrews 11:25; Proverbs 14:112; 16:25).
But we’re still in the valley. The glitter fades and fails. And then, one day the shadows give way to the blackness of death (Psalm 73:18-19).

Christ offers his people a better hope. Instead of darkness Christ offers us the light of eternal joy and glory (Isaiah 9:2; 42:16; Matthew 4:16). Even now, as we wait for his return or the moment of our deaths, He offers us Himself as the Light that banishes the shadows (John 8:12).  We’re still in the valley, but we can live now in the joy and glory of Christ (John 12:46; 15:8-12; Psalm 18:28).

This blog is devoted to learning to rejoice in the valley, in the shadow, through the Light (1 Peter 1:6-8).
