Please Join Us!  This Sunday, January 14th, Pastor John shares a message entitled, Money Matters which is part 3 of Higher Resolutions. The rich man's meal was incredible - carved turkey with all the trimmings - pumpkin pie for dessert. The sick, homeless guy at the end of the rich man's driveway - nothing. Jesus paints, with words, a picture with tremendous contrast that is a vivid reminder of the importance of sharing our blessings with others. Come this Sunday and discover how to have your best year by giving with a purpose in 2018.
