Friends. It was a joy to worship Sunday morning. Thanks for joining us in person or online. Please read on…

Two items came out of Sunday morning’s Prayer and Bible Study time which I think were pretty awesome and can help us meet some basic needs in the community.

The following will be open to the community from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm or by appointment.

1. We have set up a BLESSINGS TABLE which includes a fridge for perishables.

How does this work? Bring your blessings and leave them

and take what you need. If we get too much we will

distribute through various local charities, including CCA.

What can you bring? Food, Toiletries, Basic Supplies. We

do have a fridge set up for perishables.

2. We have set up a prayer chapel for anyone who would like to have come to and pray for our nation, doctors, nurses, first responders or anything which God has laid on your heart. You can come in pray undisturbed or can ask Pastor Matt to join you for prayer.

Our mission is:

to exalt Jesus Christ by being fruitful disciple-makers and expressing God’s love by serving all people.
