Please note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back parking lot through the double doors. Also the church has a wheelchair located in the back of the sanctuary for anyone who wishes to assist a person coming to a meeting.  Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing.

Broward County Public Schools is hosting an “Educational Engagement Fair” on Saturday, Jan. 10, 2009 from 9 am to noon at McFatter Technical Center, 6500 Nova Drive in Davie. This is an outreach to those who have dropped out of school. Students will learn about the options available to them for getting their diploma. It’s never too late to graduate is the message. Please see the poster on the bulletin board.

Please remember that the Church has an account with the Car Program, Inc. which allows us to benefit from any cars (trucks, boats, etc.) donated in our name. If you or anyone you know has a vehicle that they don’t want to go to the bother of disposing please call the church office for details as to how all the hassle can be taken out of this process. The donor gets a tax write-off and the church gets a lump sum payment!
