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. 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.

Registration for the 2013/14 school year for ages 1-5 years has started at the Preschool. Spaces are limited so register early.

At Annual Conference June 12-15 our new Bishop Ken Carter is encouraging “Telling Our Stories” so if anyone would like to make a four minute presentation please talk to our lay representative Judith Pierre-Okerson or Pastor David
This church supports BOLD Justice (Broward Organized Leaders Doing Justice) since it began over five years ago. In that time we have achieved the building of 2,322 units of affordable rental housing, a home ownership mortgage modification workshop that helped 3,544 families, an expansion of Drug Courts throughout Florida serving 2,000 people and saving $98 million tax dollars, helped streamline the unemployment registration process so that people got their benefits faster, and a pilot reading program which is helping 500 students through Direct Instruction. We are working toward this reading program being implemented in more schools and the provision of a preference for Broward County residents to be hired for jobs that our local government contract for.
