This Sunday 10:00 am
 our Worship and

Senior High Mission Trip Commissioning will be at
Holy Trinity Community Church 3800 Judson Rd
Dear Congregation,
            This Sunday I will be preaching and our musicians will be leading worship at Holy Trinity.  Our experience of worship with the folks at Holy Trinity will help us answer the question of whether God is calling us to bring our congregations together, and to eventually become one congregation.  Your presence is a part of discerning God's leading.   Worship will begin at 10:00 a.m.   Nursery will be provided by our volunteers.  There will be no Sunday School following worship.  
              May God continue to grant us wisdom and strength  as we take this next step in our journey with Christ.  

The Senior High mission trip will be leaving
next Sunday morning for a week in the
 Dominican Republic.   
There will be 36 participants on the trip.  We will be doing construction type work and ministering in an orphanage.  We would appreciate your prayers as we serve the Lord on this trip.  Please pray that God will do a great work in the lives of the Dominicans and in our lives as we embark on this journey.   You can follow our progress at Score International's website @ Once at the website, click on the news tab and then trip updates and Dominican Republic updates.
