THANK YOU - to all who took part in our Mini Mission Silent Auction! We appreciate our donors, our bidders, our buyers and all who support our Mission teams heading to Kenya in June 2018 and Guatemala in Summer 2019.  Through your generosity, we raised over $2300!!  Asante Sana!  Gracias!  THANK YOU! (5/6)

ASANTE SANA/THANK YOU to all who gave gifts to our His Arms Famine Relief/Building Repair fund.  It resulted in $758, which is awesome! We already sent funds to have a sensor light installed for safety and so each of our children will get a bag of beans for their families. They will also be given another bag of beans, which they will gift to a neighbor who is lacking food and share that Jesus loves them too. We are so proud of our children to carry on such valuable work with your help!  May you all be blessed to be a blessing!  The remainder of the funds will be used to pay for glass repair and new bars on our windows. (5/6)

 

THANK YOU! We earned $525 for the purchase of books and school supplies from the Cookies for Kenya last Sunday!  A huge thank you to all! (5/6)

MAY 20 = ONE SERVICE, WORK DAY, & POTLUCK! – Join us for our annual Peace Work Day with a twist this year!  We will worship together with ONE SERVICE at 8:00 a.m. and then go to work, ending our work with a potluck lunch.  Plan to come and worship, work a little (we will have jobs for all ages and abilities), and fellowship a lot!

DID YOU KNOW?  There are steps with handrails on both sides of the stage in the sanctuary along with the option of using the ramp, which also has a handrail.  There is an AED in the entry by the north doors.  And we have spots saved in worship for those that might need a little more room.  We are always looking for ways to make our building more accessible and safe for all, so please let us know if you have ideas. (5/13)

Love is holy because it is like grace — the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.
