In Last Week’s Bible School, children learned how to be
Super Heroes for God
Do Good
Work for Peace
Go For It !!
                       Children in Bible School learned that when we ask God for forgiveness, when we are truly sorry, He hears and forgives us.
In Children’s Sunday School, we are jumping back into the exciting stories of the Old Testament.  
Be sure to stop by the  display Dr. Alan Gorrell created for the church with information about this year’s Conference.
We gratefully acknowledge the
following gifts:

How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. Psalm 111: 2-4a NLT
