Christian Fellowship is important as we gather and enjoy the company of fellow believers in Christ. If you are looking for a Christian community, these events are good introduction to the wonderful folks who make up our church family. You are always welcome to contact the church office for more information. Each week we publish The Messenger, a newsletter full of coming events, community activities and special requests for our church community.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the filling of 90 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. This is an outstanding effort in a difficult year and your gifts of love will be very much appreciated by the children who receive them. These shoeboxes are now on their way to disadvantaged children in some of the world's most impoverished countries.
If you did not have an opportunity to participate and would still like to support the work of Operation Christmas Child, you may donate funds online and a box will be packed for you.
