Larry Cecil prior to making a donation to the Church Discretionary Fund.  Your help will be a blessing to Gary and Kay.  Please pray about this and give from your heart.


Adult Choir Practice

Adult Choir practice meets each Thursday night at 8 p.m. in the Sanctuary.  Please come and share your talent!  New choir members are always welcome.  Please see Chris Brown for details.


The Cafe

The new Cafe area located off the Fellowship Hall (formerly the small dining/storage room) is now open for business!  Scheduling for this meeting space will be handled through the church office.  Please do not assume the room will be available.  Rather, please contact the office for scheduling information.  Gordon Brothers has graciously supplied a water tank that supplies instant hot and cold water.  Hot Chocolate and Tea Bags are available in the Cafe for your enjoyment.  Coffee and a Coffee Maker are also available.  There is a donation box on the counter.  Donations will be greatly appreciated as we attempt to get the Cafe Ministry up and running.
