Sabbath Services - 3:00 PM

Guest speakers Kelly McDonald and Kurt Hoyer will talk about the importance of testimony in their message “Sharing Your Story.” The Church of God Cincinnati praise band will lead us in worship of our great God!
Kelly McDonald, Jr. is President of the Bible Sabbath Association (BSA). He travels the country encouraging believers to pursue God’s purpose for their lives. He grew up in a traditional Protestant home, and over the course of several years, God drew Kelly into more Biblical understanding. In 2007, Kelly accepted the call into the fullness of God’s truth. His desire is for everyone to know the blessing of these truths.
Kurt Hoyer was raised in the Church of God since early childhood and grew up with great friends and fond memories of yearly trips to the Feast. Those experiences and memories were strong ties connecting him to a way of life that can be challenging while it is rewarding. He survived the usual traumas of high-school where he found that an iconoclastic spirit and a healthy dose of independent thinking was valuable in a world that pushed conformity. He met his wife Jennifer at Ambassador College and they have been married for 30 years. For the last 20 years Kurt has worked as a Diplomat for the U.S. Department of State. His world-wide experience has underlined the need the whole world has for God’s Kingdom. Kurt and Jennifer are the proud parents of three teenage boys.

If nothing else may it inspire you to devise your own methods to provide for others without allowing a lack of budget or materials to stand in your way!

2nd Greatest
Shopkeepers, town council, the mayor, the police—everybody is frustrated about a run-down neighborhood, and the aggressive behavior of one particular homeless man. A young new pastor comes to town, and can't shake the feeling that he and his church can bring healing and help to a divided community. This stirring Christian drama was inspired by actual events in scenic Golden, Colorado, where the "Golden Rule" changed a community forever. Appropriate for ages 12+
