Operation Christmas Child 

We will be accepting donations for the Operation Christmas Child on a monthly basis this year.  The different items needed are posted on the bulletin board in the hallway.



Our 2018 AWANAS program just began.  Bring your kids out Sunday nights at 5:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall behind the church. This ministry is focused on fun kids activities, making friends and learning about the Bible.  Kids earn rewards for memorizing Scripture and can redeem them regularly for prizes.  It's a great way to learn about the Bible and God!
