 July 30, 2018

     We've had quite a journey this summer as we've been meeting our disciple friends that joined us this Spring during our Holy Week "Living Last Supper".  We want to thank them for taking the time out of their busy schedules to be with us each and every week and can't wait to meet the rest of them as the summer continues. So don't be alarmed if you see some folks wandering around between the services who may or may not be dressed in a modern day wardrobe.
Jeremy Daniels, Associate Pastor
