Parenting in Perilous Times: How to Raise Children in a Culture Gone Wild.

Raising children these days is not easy.  The world is changing so rapidly that the ways of raising children we learned seem irrelevant.  Confusion abounds.   Many parents are paralyzed, not knowing what to do.  Yet we can find  answers that are relevant, clear and helpful.

What do you think is supremely valuable?  What do you spend your energies pursuing?  What should you pursue with all your might?  Jesus gives you clear answers.  He doesn't leave you in the dark about those most important questions.  In this multi-part series, Pastor Tim helps us understand Loving God & Loving Your Neighbor.


PART I - The Messiah I Never Knew: Old Testament Narratives Seeking to be Heard

While 1 Samuel describes David as "a man according to God's heart," both liberal and conservative interpreters have found cause to denigrate David's character, regarding him as a weak monarch at best, at worst a conniving tyrant who used propaganda to leave a false legacy. However, if we properly understand how 1-2 Samuel works, we will see that some of the very features that have been held up as evidence of David's weakness are those in which God's character shines forth most powerfully. This series demonstrates how the books of 1 and 2 Samuel function to present a model messiah, giving hope for the believer in every generation. It further demonstrates that Jesus is the Great Messiah precisely because he is like David.

Part II - Church Ministry After Obergefell

In June 2016 the United States Supreme Court in Obergefell et al, v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health et al legalized same-sex marriage in the United States.  Though it did not directly or immediately affect the Church the future implications of this decision could be profound and pervasive.  We will be looking at how this decision impacts the Church and how we should prepare.



The greatest joys you will have in life will probably involve your children and/or grandchildren.  The greatest heartaches you will have in your life will probably involve your children and/or grandchildren.  Wise is the person who pays attention to parent-child relationships!  Even wiser is the person who seeks wisdom from God.

Guest speakers: Randy and Cindy Patten

Can you parent the “right” way? You can if you understand what the Bible says about this important part of life. You are surrounded by competing philosophies telling you how to raise your children.

Pastor Tim Pasma begins an expository study of Genesis in this series beginning April 27th. Listen and hear what this ancient book has to say to us in the 21st century. Although written centuries ago, it is God's Word, useful for teaching, convicting, correcting and training in righteousness. Join us on the journey.


The Bible does not use the word "member" in our relationship to the local church. Instead it talks about "submisison," "authority," "dependence," "intimacy" and "preparation." In this three part series, Pastor Tim Pasma challenges us to think biblically about church membership.


Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger..." James 1.19

The way we communicate exposes who we are and where we are in life. It has tremendous impact on our lives and on those with and about whom we are communicating. In this series of studies our goal will be to understand what God wants, where we fail and how we can communicate in a God-honoring way.

Guest speaker: Dr. Nicolas Ellen

Who is Jesus? That is the question. A writer by the name of John answers that question in his Gospel. John clearly believes Jesus is God in the Flesh. Then, for 20 chapters, John unpacks the evidence for his conclusion. As he does, he marvelously allows you and I, as the readers, to enter into all kinds of encounters with Jesus as well as witness a variety of responses people had to Jesus. John concludes with the Big Question.... What do you think about Jesus? Who do you say He is?

Guest speaker: Pastor Paul Phillips


19th Annual Bible Conference

While we may think that our modern day battle against falsehood and deception is new, it isn’t. Ever since Eden, deception and truth twisting are part and parcel of our human existence and it is our charge to be on guard against it. We must first understand where the truth lies and then stand up for its content. The faces and names may change over history, but there is truly nothing new under the sun.
Our speaker, Eddie Exposito, pastor of Sovereign Grace Fellowship of Slidell, Louisiana, founded Homeland Missions in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Over the years Homeland Missions has ministered to the needs of the disadvantaged and impoverished in the greater New Orleans area as well as training churches from across the United States in mercy ministries.
