You don’t want to miss our worship service on Sunday when Student Life takes over! Junior high and high school students will be volunteering to serve coffee, greet, pass out bulletins and play on the worship team. We see our youth as the NOW Generation, not just the Next Generation! Celebrate the gifts and talents of our youth with us at this special service.
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.
