Is God Calling you to Minister to Others?

As part of our Labor of Love initiative, we will be beginning a Lay Ministers program which will be pairing up a trained lay minister from within the congregation with individuals or families in the church or community who would like to have someone to talk and pray with them on a regular basis.  We will be training Lay       Ministers on the afternoon of Sunday, January 23rd, so please consider if God is calling you to be a part of our Lay Ministers team.  If you are considering it, please talk with Pastor Andrew, and he will give you more information!

The Business of 2011

Mark your calendars for the following meetings to take place in the next month.  We are excited about all that God is calling us to!  In addition to the meetings noted in the calendar above, we have:
