BEING CHURCH IN THE WORLD
November Sunday Evening Events 7 - 9 pm - Everyone is welcome!
  •  Join us on November 10 as Scott Gerbrandt from A Rocha MB introduces their eco-church inventory (how environmentally conscious are we in our congregation?) and helps us explore possible roadblocks that get in the way of us doing creation care.

Clothes Closet donations are now being accepted. The particular focus is on fall and winter items. Please bring your donations to the fellowship hall in the basement. If you need assistance bringing items inside or downstairs, please see a missions committee or board member and they will be happy to assist you.
