Service Information From Rob
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who have made our services both in the field and at the church so meaningful. It is time to make a few adjustments, and I hope you will bear with us as we do so.

Mostly, we just wanted you to have a little advance information regarding the possibility.
Thank you for your patience and prayers.
