Continued Building Development

We announced last week that as part of our effort to make our facilities as accessible as possible for the purpose of growing to know and serve Jesus, we are planning to concrete the entrance road and pave the upper parking lot nearest the building. We have been saving for this project, but we still need about $30,000. So the elders have set aside the 4th Sunday of the next 3 months (beginning next week) to challenge us to give over and above our normal contribution. If we can triple our contribution one week for three months, we can set aside what we need.

Young Family’s Gathering

The young families and young adults class will be having a get together at the McKeen’s on Friday at 6pm. Bring your kids and a snack or dessert.
