“Christ Caring for People through People”

 

We are a Stephen Ministry Congregation

 


 

 

If you are visiting among us this morning we extend a cordial welcome to you. It is our hope and prayer that you will be pleased and made glad that you met with us for worship.

 

Nursery care is available for small children during the worship hour. Small children are those who are infants through kindergarten age. Older children are welcomed and urged to remain in the worship service.

 

 

Do you need a Bible? Pew Bibles are available to be used during worship. If you would like a Bible for yourself, new paperback copies are available as you enter and exit the sanctuary.
