COME JOIN US at 9:45 am on Sunday.  This is the perfect time for new people to try out a new class!!


DiGGing Deeper via Zoom or at 9:45am in person in the Fellowship Hall!

The DIGGing Deeper Sunday morning study group is starting a study of the book of Revelation beginning Sunday, September 6 and continuing for 12 weeks.  We will be using the in depth study guide "Revelation, The Christian's Ultimate Victory" by John MacArthur, author of the widely used "MacArthur Study Bible."  MacArthur makes a verse by verse and often word or phrase by word or phrase examination of the writings of the Apostle John as revealed to him by Jesus.  And MacArthur follows up with questions of understanding and application.  Revelation contains so much imagery and symbolism that a 12 week study cannot examine all of it in detail.  However, you will finish this study with a much better understanding of the Revelation of Jesus and what the future holds for Christians.  You are invited to join us whether we are meeting via Zoom or in person and whether we are meeting at 9:45am Sunday morning.  For more information contact Don Allaman by email at or by phone at 724-816-6266.

An Advent Bible Study The Redemption of the Grinch – and Us! Sundays at 9:45 A.M. in  Fellowship Hall

November 29; December 6, 13 and 20, 2020


 If you have not heard yet, Pastor Alyce loves the Grinch!  Since she was a little girl, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” has been her favorite Christmas special.  Someone once asked her how such a nice person could love the mean, old Grinch.  Her answer was, “It’s the end of the story that matters.  We all want to be judged by the end of our story and not the beginning!”


She is inviting you to explore with her important biblical/faith themes that arise in the beloved story:

November 29: Bitterness

December 6: Revenge/Sin

December 13: Forgiveness/Transformation

December 20: Reconciliation


Of course, we’ll watch some clips from the original classic – and Pastor Alyce is planning to wear some of her Grinch attire to inspire you to love the Grinch, too!



Prepare your hearts for Christmas and join in this fun and enlightening Bible Study!  All are welcome!
