Fire Starters: Pastor Ron's New Book

You can’t start a fire without a spark, just as you can’t have a relationship without communication. Fire Starters was written to create a daily spark in your relationship with God with daily topics you can lift up in prayer. Through Pastor Ron’s 50 years of experience in guiding people closer to Jesus, you will learn how to open an intimate dialogue with God and stay dedicated throughout the year to growing in Christ. Fire Starters is a 365-day devotional geared towards setting your prayer life ablaze. Books are $10 and are available for purchase on

Don't miss out on a fun experience for your kids (1st grade to 6th grade) this summer with our Vacation Bible School, starting Monday, July 13, through Friday, July 17, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The cost is $10. At Rocky Railway VBS, kids discover Jesus' power can pull them through life's ups and downs.  Rocky Railway is filled with incredible Bible - learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life.  (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy.  Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.)  Plus, we'll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life - something we call God sightings. Please call (661)325-2251 for additional information.
