All-Ministries Meeting Cancelled

The all-ministries meeting scheduled for after this Sunday’s service has been cancelled.  We hope to get it rescheduled for some time in the next few weeks, but we’ll be sure to let everyone know when a new date has been set.

For those who were present at last week’s meeting, please still bring your calendar items / ideas to give to Karen Thoma.  Thank you so much!

While our pastor is away this week – Brother Shawn Hartness will be filling in for this Sunday’s service, and Pastor Eddie Hounshell will be helping out with Tuesday night’s service.

Please keep Pastor Cox in your thoughts and prayers this week. Pray for our church and church family that God leads us and guides us the way He would have us to go.


We love you and pray God’s blessings upon you,

Your friends in Christ
