Heritage Sunday

Join us on Sunday, September 8, as we celebrate Heritage Sunday!

Please bring side dishes to share. Following lunch, we’ll have a Baked Goods auction with all proceeds going to Dove, Inc. Bring your baked goods packaged and labeled for the sale. This is always a fun event, and we look forward to having you join us!

Men’s Summer Bible Study

You’ll get through this.

It won’t be painless.

It won’t be quick.

But God will use this mess for good.

Don’t be foolish or naïve.

But don’t despair either.

With God’s help, you’ll get through this.
