May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God inspired. Click here to download Bible readings.

From the Stewardship Committee
As school begins each fall, we start a new season of recognizing the time and talents of our youth via school activities like academics, sports, and music.  It is also a time to recognize and assess our time, talents and financial gifts to God and this church.  We will be reaching out to you with pledge cards in the coming weeks.  Prayerfully consider how you could increase your support to this church and our mission. Just as sports and music require practice, so do our habits of giving.  Let’s get to practice! (luckily there are no sprints involved for us)
