Fair Weather for our Ministry Fair

Thank you for all those who came out to the ministry fair this past Sunday! We are so grateful we had clear skies and fans to cool us off. Below are some pictures from the day. Enjoy!
And a big thank you to everyone who held move tables, set up, and tear down.

Raising Money for Good Causes

Thank to your generosity, we raised over $6,300 for Rev. Justin Arockiasamy’s mission with more coming in each day! Please continue to pray for this mission which brings life, respect, and dignity to it’s people.


The cutting boards were a success! Ronnie Perrin has raised over $9,000 for our soon to be “new” day chapel! Be sure to keep all construction, refurbishing, and redecorating of the chapel in your prayers.

Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
