Pastor Lane speaking…


Psalm 100:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.


The fruit of our labor is finished! I want to thank all of our members who have spent countless hours planning our building project, carrying out the project to the end, volunteers working, painting, cleaning, etc. on the project. It is work well done.

January 4th will be our dedication Sunday for the building project. I am very excited. We will have a super entrance to our building from the parking lot. The lift and Sunday school rooms will be open for you to try out!


We will end the service on the 4th with a walk down the new hallway, pick up our lunch served by our Church Council, have lunch and then have an open house in our refurbished Sunday.


In Christ,

Pastor Lane
