Children’s Church will meet TODAY.  Our Children’s Church is offered on the second and fourth Sunday of each month. Kids in Kindergarten through 4th grade are welcome to attend.

 Women’s Bible Study coming in Sept!  We invite women from teens to adults to join us as we begin “The Quest” by Beth Moore.

We will meet one night per week starting in September. If you’re interested in joining us, please check out a copy of the study in the foyer and be sure to add your name to the list on the bulletin board outside the church office.
