Upcoming Events & Announcements

>>>>>>> Thanks for a Successful VBS Week
     Thank you to everyone who helped with our Operation Arctic VBS by teaching, working in the kitchen or recreation, leading music, praying, taking pictures, donating desserts and milk jugs, driving the bus, decorating, acting in skits for the closing program, taking out garbage and performing a multitude of tasks so that children could learn: "All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness." (2 Timothy 3:16 NIV) An extra big thank you to Mary Ann for coordinating it all!
