ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING Today immediately following the service, we will meet to elect Elders and approve the 2017-2018 budget. Everyone, but especially all members, are encouraged to stay for this brief meeting. We want to elect wise leaders, and be wise in planning, as well as being good and faithful stewards of the bountiful treasures that God has given to us.
S.O.A.P.ING WEEKLY S.O.A.P. through a passage in advance of Sunday service each week. Then come prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word. The passages for the month of March are:
