Update from Pastor Darrel

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. – James 1:2-4 (NLT)

A New Journey Through James

This morning, we begin a new series on the book of James. Written by the half brother of our Lord Jesus, it is filled with practical applications of how we are to walk as Christians. Because of this, it has been called a guide to “shoe leather” Christianity. 

This morning, we will look at the first twelve verses on how to find joy in life’s difficult times. Pray that God will bless our time is James!

Hello From Seattle! 

I am writing this on Wednesday morning from a town just north of Seattle Washington. I was invited to travel here by our Texas Baptists state convention to see what God is doing and how we as a church might help churches here. This is a highly unchurched area with an overwhelming majority of people who have no idea about the Bible or the Savior. I look forward to sharing with you later. It has been eye opening!

Why are We Here?

We help people Believe in Christ as Savior, Belong to His Church, and Become His devoted followers.

Where are you in this Journey? We’re here to help! 

Discipleship Studies Begin This Evening at 6:00

Austin will be leading a study called “The Treasure Principle, Unlock the Secret of Joyful Giving,” by Randy Alcorn. 

Choose one and join us!

Think about it… “The day will come, dear friend, when your cheeks, all befouled with weeping, shall be washed, and made fair to look upon. Your eyes may be weary with waiting and watching, and red with weeping; but that weeping shall endure only for a night. “Joy cometh in the morning,” as surely as the morning cometh after the night. – C.H. Spurgeon
