If you or someone in your family needs school supplies please come up before or after church and help yourself. If you are willing to shop some of the Back-To-School sales leave your donation for our school families on the table. Continue reading

As Brandi and I were talking out in the parking lot, neither of us could believe how these songs spoke to our hearts after the week she and Eddie experienced. It was almost as if God was saying to us, "I had this in hand the whole time." Continue reading

It is so wonderful and sadly all too rare to see multiple churches come together in a common worship experience. Tuesday morning was a lot of fun for me. I got to know several other of my fellow co-workers in Christ. Continue reading
