This weekend join us for worship and a special dedication of our Peace Pole. The Peace Pole is a “post” with the inscribed message of peace, “May Peace Prevail On Earth” written in 8 different languages. Our worship theme this coming weekend focuses on God’s love for all and sharing that love through peace; Pastor Reggie’s message is titled “Making Peace.” Following our worship we will gather as a congregation at the north entrance of the church property and dedicate the Peace Pole.
