Church-Wide Invitation: The 5pm Worship Service is continuing and would appreciate the Church’s attendance. The youth leaders need to have the congregation’s support. So please come and see what they are accomplishing and enjoy worshiping with them, then stay and enjoy a meal together. Thank you in advance for your support!
