THANK YOU,

Dear Friends, 
We would like to offer our deepest thanks to the congregation. First for your love and support during Roy’s time as Minister of Visitation. These have been 3+ wonderful years in ministry, and what a fitting ministry from which to retire for the last time. We were so very blessed by the reception between services last Sunday. Thank you to the children and youth for the beautiful plant that now adorns our front porch. We thank all of you for your contributions toward the cash gift of $500.00. In addition, all of the kind words shared with us on Sunday morning were more than we could have ever expected. Finally, there are so many people who made this celebration possible and we hesitate to begin to list all for fear of omitting anyone. We would like to thank Brian, representing a host of people and several organizations in the church for his very kind words in making the presentation during church. 

Thank you all!!!!!! 
Roy & Beth Quist

VBS 2022

This summer we will celebrate VBS during our Sunday School hour each week!

Anne and Grace Durrett will be the VBS leaders so be prepared for whacky music/dance and super fun games and thoughtful Bible lessons!

Our theme this year is ROCKY RAILWAY!

Rocky Railway doesn’t rely on more traditional teaching methods (like fill in the blank puzzles or word searches), kids EXPERIENCE Bible stories in powerful, life changing ways!

VBS begins Sunday, June 26th at 9:30 a.m.

Meet at the Side Door Service and following the Children’s Message we will hop on the train for a summer of FUN!
