Further, we will be hosting two orientation meetings (and you may choose one to attend). These include Sunday, August 13, at 10:15 AM and at 4:00 PM in Pastor Jeff’s office.
Join us for prayer in the Fireside Room from 10:15 - 10:40 AM on Sunday mornings. In the month of July, Carroll See will provide servant leadership to this important service.
