A Special Thank You to everyone who is helping with gardening, lawn mowing, and cleaning to keep our church campus looking beautiful!




This Sunday...

Pastor Randy’s message is titled “Be the Good” and is based on
Matthew 7:15-16a, 21, 24-27. You may want to read the scripture in advance.
We will once again have a 9:30 a.m. online Worship Service on Facebook Live.
