The Slice: ARISE Celebration Sunday!
We have a reason to celebrate! We exceeded our $1.9 million goal by giving $1,913,506 and have been blessed beyond measure in countless other ways. Praise God! Come to our ARISE Celebration Sunday at 9:30 and 11 a.m. Make every effort to be on time to service so you don’t miss any of the special elements planned! Members of our church body will share stories of what God has done the past two years and there will be other surprises as we celebrate the Lord’s provision.
We will be taking a benevolence offering at the end of service Sunday. This is a special offering that goes directly to help those in our church body who have a financial need. Please look for the ushers as you leave the auditorium.
