announcements & events
October 21st (Sunday)- Pastor Appreciation Sunday- As Paul stated in I Timothy (5:17): “that the elders of the church are worthy of a double honor and he added in, I Thessalonians (5: 12-13) that those who work hard among you should be held in the highest regard for their work.
