Our church currently has three pianos and we will be giving the one located in the Children’s Sunday School Classroom away.   We are asking that if anyone from our church family is interested please see Gregg. 

Our Christian Sympathy goes to Kenny Walker and Family!  Debbie Walker went to be with her Lord and Savior this past week!  

December is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. Please pray how you can support this ministry.  Because you and your church give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, IMB missionaries can take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation”.  

December 11th:  Susan, Josh and the Youth will be hosting a give away of gently used clothing (adults & children sizes) & toy items to foster families.  If you have anything to donate please put in the youth loft by December 11th.  Please see Susan for more information.
