Welcome to all visitors.  You are invited to stand during the service and introduce yourself, or to have someone else introduce you.  We want to give you one of our welcome packs and therefore encourage you to fill out the card and tear off the badge, write your name on it and wear it so that we can greet you during and after the service. Please note that there is a wheelchair entrance from the back parking lot through the double doors. The church has a wheelchair in the back of the sanctuary for anyone wishing to assist a person coming to a meeting. Rest rooms for the disabled are available in the Preschool wing.


Thanks to all who have given so faithfully throughout the year. Please remember that we need to pay all the bills during the summer months so if you go away (and enjoy your vacation) perhaps you could leave your tithes and offerings with someone to put in during the service, or leave in the church office. So that blessings abound! 


The brochures for the trip to the Holy Land, Feb. 27 to March 8, 2013 are available on the back table. Interested in going? Please pick one up and see Pastor David.
