Here's a gift idea for the youth in your life! If they are thinking of going to summer camp next year our group would be hoping to go July 4-9 and early in the new year we need to send in our registrations and scholarship forms. Why not give them the gift of the registration fee of $75 or even sponsor an additional amount to help them pay for the total camp fee of $380? See Pastor David or Fay Harley for how you can do this.


Pastor David will resume the Alpha Course on Wednesday, January 12 at 7:00 p.m. created for those who would like to explore the meaning of the Christian faith.  Especially good for adults thinking of joining the church but it is open to everyone. The Alpha, held all over the world, covers these topics: How Can I Resist Evil? Why and How Should We Tell Others? Does God Heal Today? What About the Church? How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?
