DVD Ministry - we are in need of donations to our DVD ministry.  The Sunday DVDs are very popular and useful to our home-bound members, as well as others in our community (we are mailing out more than 15 each week).  If you would like to help, please put a check in the collection plate marked "DVD ministry."  Any amount is needed and appreciated.



The Rose Garden - As Spring approaches, work has continued on the Rose Garden that many of us know and love. We are asking members of the congregation for a one time Love Offering to help keep the Rose Garden beautiful. Please use the Love Offering envelopes and write "Rose" in the To Be Used For line. Thank you and always remember to Stop and Smell the Roses in life.


Soren Dockings is working on a Legacy Book Project that will be a collection of poems, Short Stories and Photographs that will be combined into a Faith Book which we will seek to publish with the profit of the book going directly to the Church as a continued gift of our talents. If you have writings or pictures of your own that you would like to donate to this project, please email them to Soren at:, or drop them by the office. Let us share our Faith and Talents given to us by God in order to Continue the work of His Church for years to come
