Capital Campaign Coming to a Close
CURRENTLY PLEDGED: $373,000
Our For His Glory Capital Campaign is coming to a close.
We’ve watched the For His Glory thermometer advance well beyond the halfway mark, thanks to all who have committed to join our quest to secure both a “Place” of worship and the “Song” within it. By now you’ve received a commitment card. Should you still need more information, a detailed account of the organ’s history and its new possibilities is available in the church office. Let’s all keep praying.

Meal Reservations are closed, but you are welcome to attend the Program at 6:30 PM.

After 30 years in prison he badly wanted a legacy for his daughter and grandson. Tommy is not only a changed man, he's a man on a mission to show the power and beauty of human growth while overcoming desperate conditions. Let's show him our support.
