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 11/6/2022

Sunday Sermon 11/6/2022



A Heart Full of Treasure

Psalm 119:9-16

The Question (v. 9)

  • How can a person keep their life free from sin and the damage it causes?
  • The answer: by guarding your life by living according to God’s word.

Ask for God’s Help (v. 10)

  • We ask for God’s help not to wander from His commandments.

Internalize God’s Word (v. 11)

  • We fill our hearts with whatever it is we treasure.

Praise God for His Word (v. 12)

  • We praise Him because we see how great a blessing it is to have His word.

Speak God’s Word (v. 13)

  • The treasure, that is God’s word, is meant to be shared.

Delight in God’s Word (v. 14)

  • Often times, all we need to do with God’s word is delight in it.

Meditate on God’s Word (v. 15)

  • This means we must do more than just read God’s word; we must think about what it truly means.

Remember God’s Word (v. 16)

  • Since we are so forgetful, we must be intentional about remembering God’s word.
