prayer walk

On June 26th, we will again walk through our community and pray. We’ll have a light lunch after worship and then we’ll head out into the community for a 1-1/2 mile walk with three prayer stops along the way:

We expect the walk to take about an hour. For those who want to come but can’t walk the church van will tag along to the three stops. Join us as we get out in our community and pray!
College Dinners

College Spagetti Dinner
Our final spagetti dinner for the 2015-16 year was held Thursday, April 29th.  We are thankful to all who helped make this past year's outreach to college students successful.  Dinners have given students a chance to socialize, meet our members and Pastor, and learn about our church's ministries.  We are also thankful for the students and wish them well in their future endeavors!
