These decisions were made to keep us as comfortable as possible, and keep everyone safe! Or if you feel more comfortable staying at home we will continue to live stream the service […]

As we welcome in the new year, we welcome a new season. What is this season for you? Pastor David Hargrave presented us with this message to begin the year as we transition from the excitement and busyness of the holidays, taking down decorations, and taking a look at where we’re heading next. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says: there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Todo tiene su momento oportuno; hay un tiempo para todo lo que se hace bajo el cielo. We, as a church, welcomed Pastor David this past year and we […]
