This month has us looking at friendships in the Bible. Our lesson this Sunday is about four friends. The story is about a man who was paralyzed, and his friends took him to see Jesus. This man needed his friends in order to get to Jesus. We need to be the kind of friend that will tell our friends about Jesus.



The theme and dates for this year’s VacationBible School have been set. The dates will be Tuesday, May 28- Friday, June 1 from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. The theme this year is ROAR: Life is Wild– God is Good. Please prayerfully consider volunteering to help with VBS this year.

Solid Ground Youth

This Sunday we will continue our study from the Book of Psalms.  This week’s lesson is on one of the most well-known and influential Psalms – Psalm 23. This Psalm helps us to see that Jesus is the Good Shepherd.  We can be assured that if we follow Jesus, He will lead us to good things.
