Youth, do you sing or play an instrument and have a heart for worship? Mike Harloff is hoping to build a youth team to help with Sunday morning worship. If you’re interested or have questions, please connect with Mike at mikeharloff@hotmail(dot)com

We are looking for volunteers to join our tech crew! If you’d be willing to sit in the sound booth once a month and run the computer (song, announcement, and sermon slides) please let the church office know.


Thank you for investing in our Summer Slam VBS ministry! Because of the generosity of this congregation, the snack list has been filled! Please remember that grapes and apples need to be dropped off on Sunday, August 20 – all other items can be dropped off any time during regular office hours. There is a labelled box in the main kitchen.
