Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!  
Philippians 4:4
A few days ago, another brother and I got to spend the weekend with our former Pastor, Dan and his wife Carole Trautman. Among the highlights of our time together was attending worship service in their new church facility.
Walking into their new, open and welcoming foyer, I found myself imagining what might be, even here at our present facility.
In the coming months some of those ideas and improvements are being planned here, and could be implemented in and around our facility. The future of our experience together at 9th and Court Street is looking brighter and brighter!
Be watching, be curious, but most of all, BE THANKFUL. 
Our unchanging God is in charge! 

In Jesus' name - Be Blessed!
