The Church at the Butte is A Place to Belong. Whether you are a community leader, business owner, retired senior, single adult, or a young family you can find A Place to Belong with us.

Together, we are making a difference in our community through The Shepherd’s Closet, Meals on Wheels, All-Stars for children, WIRED for youth and Legacy for seniors. We also help support church planters throughout the United States, thousands of missionaries in approximately 200 countries.


Several of our members make trips to our mission church in Mexico to support them and strengthen their service. We participate with Franklin Graham’s  Operation Christmas Child. This ministry distributes gift-filled shoe boxes to children throughout the world, demonstrating that people matter to God.

Drop in on a Sunday morning just after nine o’clock for Coffee and Conversation. Then stay for Sunday Morning Worship at ten o’clock. Pick up some brochures and make a couple of new friends. You may discover A Place to Belong sooner than you think.

Sermon 4/19/2020

Sunday 4/19/2020 Sermon



God is Our Warrior


When you think of God how do you picture Him?

Some picture God in an unbiblical way.

Some picture in a biblical way but see how the ways that Scripture show Him.


One thing the Bible tells us about God is that He is a warrior


Exodus 15:3 (NIV) – The Lord is a Warrior

Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV) – He is a Mighty warrior

Isaiah 42:13 (ESV) – He is a Champion


As Our Warrior What Does God Do?


Exodus 14:14 (ESV) – He will Fight for us


Jeremiah 20:11 (ESV) – He will Overcome our enemies


1 Samuel 17:45-47 (ESV) – The Battle belongs to the Lord


John 16:33 (ESV) – He has overcome all of the troubles of the World


Deuteronomy 20:1-4 (ESV) – God gives the Victory

Proverbs 21:31 (ESV)

1 Corinthians 15:57 (ESV)


Why Do We Need God as Our Warrior

We are in a war

We are in daily battles

Our enemy is not flesh and blood – Ephesians 6:10-13 (ESV)

We have the armor of God

We have godly weapons – 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (ESV)


We are in a battle for our soul

We have been given weapons to use

We have God as our Mighty Warrior

We depend on God and the spiritual weapons

Through obedience we experience victory
