The Reason for Thanksgiving – Colossians 1:12-14; …….giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom

Love Your Neighbor November

In an effort to be more intentional in reaching our community, this month we are going to be contacting as many of our 1,900 Trunk or Treat guests as gave us their contact information. To help with this see Nick or Buddy.


The Elders have requested suggestions from the membership for men that you believe would serve the congregation well as Deacons. We were also asked to study 1 Timothy 3:8-10 to determine qualifications. Please either make your suggestions to an Elder directly, or in writing. Written notes must be signed in order to be considered.
