National Youth Gathering Update:  (posted July 25)
Ten youth, two adult leaders and Pastor Brian went to the National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis. They had a great time learning more about our Real. Present. God.  The youth enjoyed hearing the speakers at the gathering speaking on topics of their own interest.  They also enjoyed the mass event at night when more than 21,000 people gathered together to sing praises. Perhaps a tiny little glimpse of what will be in-store for us when we all get to sing together in heaven. Thank you for praying for us on our trip. 
Do you have Pictures from Church Events?
If you have pictures from church events and are willing to share them, please let the office know.  You just never know where we might use them…  Thanks!
