2020 DIRECTORY UPDATE:  If you haven’t already, please pick yours up from the member mailboxes. If you would like a digital copy for your phone or computer, please send a request to Jana at

WE’VE BEEN BUSY:  Many folks have been involved in church family life lately.  A nice crowd ate and visited during our monthly potluck dinner; 27+ Super Seniors enjoyed an indoor picnic and games; a good group of prayer pal ladies had dinner together; 15+ teens and sponsors attended Winterfest, 30+ folks kicked off the new Friday Morning Fellowship coffee breaks; 50+ enjoyed bowling and games one Sunday afternoon; Team Trivia Thursdays are still alive and well; and a group of intrepid golfers braved cool temperatures for a round. Where were YOU? Don’t miss these wonderful opportunities to get to know your church family better and to let them get to know you as well!

SECURITY REMINDER:  The doors to the fellowship center are locked following Sunday school. You can exit but not re-enter the building through these doors. Because this part of the building is left unoccupied during our worship assembly, locking these doors is a security measure. Additionally, the self locking doors in the worship center will allow you to go out but you cannot reenter without a key. Several men will be rotating duty in the foyer to admit late comers.
