See you there!

We will have fall church work days on Saturdays, September 12 and October 3 from 9am-4pm with many opportunities of service for the whole family. Here are three reasons why you should be involved:
1.) Families should serve together – being involved in service together is beneficial to spiritual development and church fellowship as a whole.
2.) Church work day needs lots of volunteers – many hands make light work.
3.) All the work is beautifying our church campus inside and out – God’s house!
Bonus reason: Free Lunch!
Please contact Building and Grounds Chair, Verk Eubanks for more info.
