Dear Church Family,

Such succinct and powerful words for us to remember:

Christ does not bid His followers strive to shine. He says, Let your light shine.

-Ellen White (COL 420)

In the news:

  4. This Sabbath afternoon at 4 p.m., there will be a memorial service for Susie Scott at the church. All are invited to attend as we celebrate her life.

  14. This past Tuesday afternoon, we filmed a couple more segments for our Gardening with Carl series. While this is the current series we are posting on our church Facebook page, we plan to include other how to videos as well as Bible lessons as we seek to build our onlin presense. The best way to grow our online presence is organicly by our own church family sharing and reposting.

Blessings as you prepare for the coming Sabbath!

In His Service,

Pastor Jeremy
