It’s our Anniversary!
Anniversary Sunday will be Sunday, November 5, 2017. Our guest speaker will be Melvin Otey. Combined Bible Classes will be at 9:30 a.m. with a Combined Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. There will be a catered meal following worship. Contributions will go to Missions and Special Efforts. There will not be an evening service, only a communion service at 6:00 p.m.

We have purchased all clothing / hygiene items in bulk, and if you would like to make a monetary donation, please earmark your check “homeless clothing.” The cost per backpack is $50 and includes the following:
Backpack, Sleeping Bag, Winter Coat & Hat, Long Sleeve Shirt, Socks, Underwear, Hygiene Kit with deodorant, toothpaste & toothbrush, soap, shampoo, comb, chapstick, & hand sanitizer. We will also have special hygiene kits and a few extras for the homeless ladies.
