Church construction update:
As work on the church’s roomy and beautiful new Spiritual Life Center nears completion, watch the Sunday bulletins and church communication channels for the official time for a dedication and open house ceremony with food, music and socializing. Both a noon Sunday celebration for church-goers as well as a public open house are planned. Stay tuned!
