Offering: We give tithes and offerings as a part of worship in

in compelling, relevant ways. All of our messages are available

Response: When God is speaking, we take time to respond.
Most of the time this is after the message, but at other times it
may be in the middle of the service. An invitation is never needed
if you want to pray at the altar.

Branching Into Missions
by Tim Crutcher
Have you ever wondered how your life connects
to God’s mission within the Church of the
Nazarene? If so, this book is for you.
Everyone—not just missionaries—should be
involved in God’s mission to redeem the world.
Just as a tree’s roots, trunk, and branches
provide specific roles in producing fruit, various
aspects of the church help produce fruit for
God’s kingdom. Like a tree reaching out in many
directions, the Church of the Nazarene has
many “branches” of mission. This book invites you to find an
opportunity for missions-involvement that connects your heart with the
needs around the world.
Amazon Adventures
by Larry Garman
Remote. Isolated. Threatening. Intriguing. In
the Amazon jungle overlooking the Kusu and
Marañon Rivers, Larry and Addie Garman,
young missionaries in the early sixties, made
their home. Walk through the jungle, navigate
the raging Marañon, slip quietly along a remote
trail, and celebrate God’s amazing grace and
one couple’s total surrender to His will. God
does extraordinary things with ordinary
people—folks like you and me—when they are
fully surrendered to Him. God has done an extraordinary thing through
the Garmans! Your life will never be quite the same after reading these

MICAH 6:8 MINISTRY from Sandy Schefcik
Did You Know… this past week at the Republican National
Convention, the party ratified the 2016 Republican Platform. On the
Redefinition of Marriage, the Republicans condemn the Supreme
Court’s ruling in the Obergefell case, and affirms marriage as the
union of one man and one woman as the “cornerstone” of society
which, states have a right to recognize as such, and declares that
“every child deserves a married mom and dad.” On Abortion,
Taxpayer Funding, and Religious Freedom, the Republicans “call for
codification of the Hyde Amendment and its application across the
government, including Obamacare" so that government is not paying
for abortions. The Republicans insist on protecting “the rights of
conscience of healthcare professionals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists,
and organizations, especially the faith-based groups”. On Planned
Parenthood and the Selling of Baby Body Parts, the Republicans,
for the first time, call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood for
committing abortions, selling baby parts, and deceiving women with
faulty consent forms. They call on Congress to enact a ban on any sale
of fetal body parts. On Religious Freedom on Marriage, the
Republicans call for the passage of the First Amendment Defense Act
and sides with the rights of florists, bakers and especially adoption
agencies who disagree with same-sex marriage. On Sex Education,
the Republicans call for increasing “sexual risk avoidance education” to
promote abstinence from sex until marriage. On
Transgender Bathrooms,
Republicans called out the Obama
administration’s Title IX bathroom edict, which “impose[s] a social and
cultural revolution upon the American people by wrongly redefining sex
discrimination to include sexual orientation or other categories” as “at
once illegal, dangerous, and ignor[ing] privacy issues.” On Terrorism,
the Republicans named the enemy, “radical Islam” and condemned its
attacks on all people: “Radical Islamic terrorism poses an existential
threat to personal freedom and peace around the world. We oppose its
brutal assault on all human beings, all of whom have inherent dignity.
The Republican Party stands united with all victims of terrorism …” On
Social Engineering in the Military, the GOP insists “We reject the
use of the military as a platform for social experimentation… Military
readiness should not be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.”
