Youth Sunday Worship Service

This past Sunday, April 30th, was Youth Sunday in our church. The entire service, from the ringing of the bell to the benediction, was planned conducted by our youth. The kids did a wonderful job of sharing their faith and love of the Lord with the congregation. We all enjoyed the important Children’s Sermon on kindness, the beautiful special music, the scripture verses that were chosen, and the personalized sermon message that was shared. You could see that the years they have spent passing through the Sunday School classes, along with the help of their parents, have proved that the messages of the Bible have gone to their hearts. We thank them all for their time and talent that was shared so freely with us all.

Enjoy some pictures of the service.

Spring Clean Up Day

A big thank you to everyone who showed up to help with the spring clean up this morning. The Memorial Garden has been worked on, the fallen tree is in process of removal, and the bean hole pit has been cleaned up ready for our first Supper on April 29th. The windows inside the building sparkle! Many hands make light work.
