Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!



We have a lot of things that are happening in the church.  We had a door smashed, and a tree has fallen, but we are still going!  I would like to thank all those who have been involved in the repairs and maintenance of the church.  Your hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed.

We also have some new ideas that are coming out of Ministry Council, one of them is the possibility of moving to a single service.  Let me repeat, this is an idea, it has not been implemented or anything as of now.  This idea was brought up last year, but we feel we really did not pray, seek council thru Elders and Pastor as well as receive feedback (positive or negative) from the congregation, if we should be looking at this change.  If you would like to share your thoughts or ideas, please share them with me at:

We are also looking for a new, Part-time secretary for the Thursday and Friday weekdays, 9am-2pm.  If you or someone you know is interested, please contact me at the above address.

We still have openings in Ministry Council, a Fellowship Chairperson, and a Public Relations Chairperson.  If interested, please contact me at the above address.

I also would like to inform the congregation that the Council and myself will try to do a better job of getting information out to the masses, especially in the realm of finances.  We have had a history of waiting until we have an emergency situation before informing the congregation.  We keep a small record of our finances that we receive in the bulletin.  It shows what we need, what we have received and our attendance, each week.  Sometimes it can look like we have had a influx of money, and gives an impression that we are good.  It takes about $10,000 per week to run our church, Day School, salaries, ministries, and maintenance.  As of this writing, we have all our bills paid, but it only takes one week of low giving and/or something breaks and we can get behind so easily.  So please keep this in mind when praying over the church and her missions and ministries.

We also have received a number of grants to keep the Food Pantry running.  This is truly a blessing!  Thru your donations, of time talent and treasure, we have been able to feed and clothe members of our church and community!

Keep an eye out for more information coming!
