We had over 70 people participate in the packing party on Nov 17 and many more who donated items for the boxes or money for shipping.  Our Sunday School kids alone collected enough offerings to pay shipping for 28 boxes!  Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to donate shipping for ALL of our boxes!  Special thanks to our “elves” who helped with set up and during the party, solicited some special donations of items, coordinated with Sunday School, and provided church office support.  We thank God for all He has provided and for the opportunity to share His love!

National Youth Gathering Update:  (posted July 25, 2019)
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!
