  • Christmas is on Sunday this year. I have been asked if we are having a Candlelight and Sunday service this year. The answer is yes, we are planning to have both services. The Candlelight service is from 6-7pm on Christmas Eve and the Special Christmas Sunday service will be from 10-11am. Please pass the word by inviting other to join us.
  • It is that time of the year. I hope that you are surviving Cyber Monday Week. I am so thankful that there is a deeper meaning to Christmas! I hope you are able to celebrate your Lord and enjoy your family this holiday season.
  • Please continue to pray for the development of our church property. We are still working on obtaining a Conditional Use Permit that allows us to use the property as a church. We are nearing the end of the process and still have a few issues to work out. Your prayer is essential.
  • Thanks to everyone that supported our students with Christmas Wreath purchases. We still have some remaining. It would be a huge blessing to the students if you could help pass the word and sell a couple wreaths to coworkers, friends and family. 100% of the costs for the Christmas Wreaths go to funding the Annual Teen Leadership Conference over Christmas break.
