September Church News



Feeling like our weekly email was getting a bit overbearing, we have decided to send out a “here is what’s coming for each month.” It will not contain all the weekly schedule, which you can find at our webpage. It will highlight what is unique about the coming month. I hope you enjoy the new format and will be glad we are not overstuffing your inbox!

I am excited about my newest Bible series based on the life of Joseph, dealing with unexpected life detours.

I hope to see you Sunday but if not, hope YOU see US on our live stream via the webpage or FaceBook!

I just Love Being Your Pastor!

Pastor Tim
