Financial Peace University
Proverbs 23:5 warns that money can “sprout wings and fly away” and we don’t know where it went. In Financial Peace University, Dave Ramsey, nationally known Christian author and radio personality, teaches biblical principles and practices on stewarding the finances God has entrusted to us. This 9-week DVD course with weekly small group discussions and workshops have helped people “tell their dollar where to go” to get out of debt, save money, and plan for the future by following Dave’s “baby steps.”
Like a new car, a marriage traveling together upon the road of life will eventually encounter bumps or potholes that may bring misalignment or friction into the marriage relationship. In the Marriage Huddle, John and Lisa Bevere, nationally known Christian speakers and authors, teach biblical principles of marriage and share their personal stories of challenge and victory in their DVD “The Story of Marriage.” This one day workshop includes viewing a section of the DVD, followed by small group discussions and related activities. These times of reflection and repentance have led to realignment and reuniting for many couples who have attended.
Proverbs 22:6 commands parents to “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” What a parent writes on the “wet cement” of their child’s heart will greatly influence how the child will live life. Ted Tripp, Christian author and speaker of “Shepherding A Child’s Heart.”
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! Just as you prepare for your wedding day, premarital coaching will help you prepare for your marriage.

In order for one of our pastors or wedding officiants to marry you, we require you to go through premarital coaching. We must receive your Premarital Coaching Request Form and Packet at least six months to one year prior to your desired wedding date to allow time to connect you with premarital coaches that would best-fit you and optimum time to complete your coaching.
A baby dedication is more than just a cultural or religious event for the child. It is actually an act of commitment by the parents. When parents dedicate their children, they are saying they are committed to love and follow God themselves and will raise their children to do the same.
We dedicate children, but do not water baptize infants or very young children. Just as receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is a personal choice as an act of faith, water baptism also requires the same. Since infants and very young children are not able to do this at this stage in life, we prefer to wait until the child is old enough to exercise his/her own choice and faith in God’s Word.
Baby dedications are conducted on the second Sunday of each month. A mandatory Baby Dedication Orientation Class is held on the first Sunday of the month and is to be completed prior to the dedication.
Please read the Baby Dedication Guidelines and Procedures and complete the form below two weeks prior to the requested 2nd Sunday of the Month. Thank you!
