Bible Sunday!
September 22nd (both services)

At both the 8:00 and 10:30 services, we will bless our 3 y/os and 2nd graders with their very own Bibles!   

Parents, choose which service you would like to attend.  During the service, Jaci will call your child’s name, and you will come forward with your child and face the congregation.  Your child’s Bible will be given to the parents and Pastor Dave will say a few words.  He will then instruct the parents to place the Bible in your child’s hands. 

This is such a special time within our church family and we look forward to seeing you all!

If you have any questions please contact Jaci.
