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 starts for the "new season."  The first study will be Adam Hamilton's series "Why?" which will cover: Why do the innocent suffer?  Why do my prayers go unanswered?  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.
