If you are looking for a way to become more involved at the church, please talk with me and will find a place to best use your God given talents.
Thanks to everyone that participates in the life of our church. All of us together make up the body of Christ.
May you have a wonderful September as the weather starts to cool, the leaves begin to change and the crops begin to be harvested. May God bless you and your loved ones!
