November Newsletter
Church Family,

What a great few weeks we have had! I have very much enjoyed walking through Philippians with you on Sunday mornings and I look forward to finishing the book in the next few weeks. On Wednesday nights we have seen the Lord bless us tremendously through our 180 Children's Ministry, our Student Ministry, the Adult Parenting Class, and our Adult Bible Study. For the most part these programs have been very well attended and, in every instance, spiritual conversations are happening. Last week we hosted our first Church Conference and had a wonderful time honoring the Lord and His servants and spending time in intentional prayer. I am very grateful for the Lord's provision and look forward to the future.

Please note that we will be producing these newsletters on a monthly basis instead of weekly, which means that this will be the only newsletter sent out until December. Please pay very close attention to all of the announcements, dates, and details listed here as November will be very busy.

Please know that I am praying for you and am so grateful to be your pastor. Love you all!

For His Glory,
Pastor Steven
