Church Life

Sunday Worship

Easter ServiceAll are invited to worship with us during our Sunday services at 10 a.m. Worship is the central act of the church. It is what makes us a church! Our pastor, Rev. Lavoie says, “My calling is to proclaim the Christian Gospel, as taught by Christ and His Apostles, not watered down or mixed with anything else.” Click here for further information about our Sunday Worship service.

Sunday School

Pastor’s Bible Studies

Bible Study 3It’s Bible Studies like no other.  A typical remark heard on the way out is “Amazing.”  It’s a history lesson about the location, lifestyle and daily struggles of the people.  Or, as Rev. Lavoie sometimes says”Let’s go down this little rabbit hole of biblical history.”  The Pastor’s Bible Studies are held on every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. and on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Men’s Bible Study Fellowship

Christmas PartyThe Men’s Bible Study Fellowship meets on Tuesday mornings at 6:30 a.m.  The men read and discuss the Bible and collect an offering to support a children’s nutrition program in Kigali, Rwanda.  They currently send $2,000 four times per year.

Women’s Fellowship

“Women Sharing in the Promises of God” is a women’s fellowship which meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 1-2 pm in the church library.  It is a time for sharing God’s word, and getting to know each other better.  There is a monthly topic, an opening song, reading and sharing, and little gifts passed out at the end.  Please join us.  We would love to have you!  Questions, call Ellie Cormier at 207-351-5661.
