Our church is evangelical (centered in Jesus Christ and strongly valuing the authority of the Bible) and Reformed (based in John Calvin’s teachings on God’s sovereignty).

Israel 2019

Israel 2019

We invite you to join us on a tour of Bible sites in Israel from 12-25 June, 2019.  

We will travel through the land, from coast, to desert, to mountains, to visit the places where important Biblical events took place, and dig deep into the Scriptures in their original context to learn about God’s faithfulness to His people, in the past, present, and future.  Our tour includes sites from the Old and New Testaments as well as the history of modern Israel.  In addition, we will learn about God’s work among believers in the land today.  Jesus will always be the center of our studies, as we seek a better understanding of His ministry, His place among the Jewish people, and the application of His teachings in our lives. 
View the itinerary, and plan to join us.  You may contact the church by email to reserve your place, firstpresherrin@gmail.com
