Donations Needed!
Thank you so much for your donations for the food bank! We are currently no longer in need of egg cartons, but non perishables are always needed.
Items we are looking for are non-perishable food items, such as peanut butter, canned meats, canned vegetables, etc. There is a designated bin in the foyer for the food pantry items. Tuesday morning will be collecting the items and delivering them to the proper locations. Monetary donations are also welcome.
We are also collecting crossword books, word find books, sudoku books, adult coloring books, and multicolored pencil packs for patients undergoing cancer treatment.
Bins for donations are located by the door of the Church House.
Livestreaming Bible Study and Worship

We are now livestreaming many of our events, including both Sunday worship services and our concert series on our YouTube channel. These can also be viewed later at the same YouTube channel. Take advantage of the opportunity to catch up on anything you’ve missed, or to share these ministries with friends who might benefit from them.
