Please call us before you come, so I can get to know you a little better, so I can give you some information about us in person.
Please call just to make sure we will be here for the scheduled Bible study, Shabbat service, Holy Day Festival, or for some special event. We are out of town on occasion to minister and help those in need, and we wouldn’t want to miss you. We wouldn’t want you to make the trip for nothing either, so please call before you come!

SO WHAT MAKES US MESSIANIC ANYWAY?
The answer is very simple and basic. I/we try very hard to be like our Messiah (Christ) in every way. We keep the Word of God and NOT the word of man! Yeshua said, “If you love me, keep my commands,” and we do, to the very best of our ability. When we fail our Lord, we repent, we ask for forgiveness, and we try even harder to please Him from then on.
We are the church, and we do not “go to church.” Our congregation is a place to learn, pray, and study. From here, we go out and minister to the needs of our “neighbor” just as Yeshua/Jesus did and taught us to do. This is very important! The first half of the great commandment is to “love the Lord, thy God, with all your heart, soul, and strength; that is the worship and study part. It is also very important to talk to God; we call this “prayer.” God always answers our prayers, always. The second half of the great commandment is to “love thy neighbor.” We cannot truly love God if we do not love our neighbor as well.
I am always available to talk to, so please call me or email as often as you would like. It is never a burden for me, but truly a blessing to hear from you.
I have several ministries that the Lord has blessed me with, and I highly encourage you to get involved in some ministry that the Lord is leading you to do. If you need any help starting one or getting involved with one, I would be honored to help you develop it.
I am real big on helping the homeless, the poor, the needy, the imprisoned, and the elderly, so if you have a need, or you know someone that does, please lead them to me or come over and talk so we can help them.
Your servant, Dave!
