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.

This week our Bible Study continues for the second night in the "new season."  The first study will be Adam Hamilton's series "Why?" we have looked at: Why do the innocent suffer?  This week we will look at: Why do my prayers go unanswered? and in following weeks we will look at:  Why can't I see God's will in my life? and Why God's Love prevails!  All are welcome at any time to join the study on Wednesday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall. Please enter the building from southern end of the parking lot by the single door.

Thanks for every contribution for the Anniversary service. In monetary terms the special envelopes brought in $3551.56
