Sunday September 11 – Vision Sunday

Pastor’s Blog September 11, 2016 In/Out Vision Sunday 2016 Proverbs 29:11 declares “without a progressive vision, the people perish.” So true.

Sunday July 17 SummerTogether

Pastor’s Blog July 17, 2016 “Friendly, Open, Inclusive.” I don’t have the answer…at least not the entire answer.
