Birthdays & Anniversarys

CHURCH COUNCIL will meet Monday evening , July 19th at 7pm


Paola Bellini Wyrick is our new assistant pastor.  She has finished her first year of seminary with a grade average of 4.0.  She will be on the church's Facebook page and preaching from time to time for us.

Again, we will be partnering with Sowing Seeds in Belize this year.  They will be sending a container to which we will be contributing.


In an effort to bring more uniformity and streamline the process to make it easier for those donating, we will be doing things a little bit differently for the 2021 celebration.  We will be collecting drawstring bags filled with age and gender specific necessities and gifts.  The kids love to get a bag filled with needed, useful and a bit of fun things!  The process is simple, just follow the links below to be part of the 2021 celebration...

or pick up a printed list in the fellowship hall.  The bags should measure 39 cm/15.4 inches by 34cm/13.8 inches.

There is also a wish list for the container ministry (also in fellowship hall)
