Pastor Appreciation Day is Next Sunday!
"Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people." Isaiah 55:4 (KJV)
Our Pastors lead our congregation with God's Word, and they live their lives reflecting what they've learned. They care deeply for each and every one of us, and they are someone we can trust. They minister with love and compassion and the Bible says they are worthy of double honor! Please take time on this special day to express your heartfelt love and appreciation for all they do. Cards of appreciation can be placed in the mailboxes in the back of the Sanctuary for all of our pastors. We are so blessed to have the wisdom and guidance of Pastor Cary, Pastor Dion, Pastor Tom, and Pastor Meador.
"The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way." Psalms 37:23
Lighthouse Kids Joining Us in Service Next Sunday

Thank You to Our Wonderful Volunteers- the Fellowship Hall is Almost Finished!
Thank you to everyone who helped remove the wallpaper in the Fellowship Hall! The walls were repaired this week, & much of the painting was done as well. We will not need to paint this Friday & Saturday as was planned, but we are grateful for all who signed up to help. We are blessed to have such willing helpers in our church family, & we look forward to working together to improve other areas of our building in the near future!
