Now is the Time

We’ve got so many exciting things going on in this church this coming year! Come hear about our future and where we are going, in our annual launch of the Pledge Drive!

The Committee has met twice now since receiving the bid, and has asked our architect to propose cuts that would bring us closer to our financial…
