If you feel the urge to make a difference for God’s Kingdom, call the Children’s Director at the office.

THANK YOU—Thank you my dear church family for your prayers, cards and emails you sent to encourage my family in the loss of my sister. Your love, support and encouraging words blessed and helped us through a difficult time. She is now with Jesus and in no more pain.

THANK YOU—We would like to thank you for your prayers, cards, and kind words since my grandfather went home to be with the Lord. It was comforting knowing that there is a group of people concerned and praying for us.

STEPHEN MINISTRY—The Stephen Ministry training class resumes weekly from early or mid-September through January. Specific details coming soon.

WOMEN’S MINISTRY NEEDS YOU—Please recycle your glass jars with lids for our craft night scheduled later this year. Please wash the jars and lids and bring them to the service. They can be in a variety of sizes.
