Join us for coffee and treats! This is our chance to reminisce, sing, or just spend time together! We meet monthly on the 2nd Thursday @ 9:30 a.m. with our friends & neighbors at Crystal Seasons. We can always use the company and maybe you could help host one month! Contact Pastor Chad with questions.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry~

Do you knit, crochet or quilt? Maybe you could contribute to our Prayer Shawl Ministry. We make shawls blessed with prayer. If this isn’t your talent, please consider contributing funds to purchase supplies. Prayer Shawls are given to those members and friends in need of comfort and prayer. Please contact Pastor Chad if you know someone that could benefit from this ministry.
