Our annual Men’s Retreat is on Friday and Saturday, November 10-11 at Country Lake. Mark your calendars and plan on attending. This retreat always proves to be a wonderful time of spiritual encouragement and challenge. We are excited to have Pastor Ken Dalton sharing with us on the importance of discipleship and mentoring others. Pastor Ken has many years of experience when it comes to investing in the lives of others and we are confident that his instruction will be an encouragement. Please reserve your spot by contacting Pastor Dan Horton.

Hanging of the Greenery

It’s that most wonderful time of the year and we need your help decorating the church for all the Christmas festivities. On Sunday, November 26 all are invited to lend a hand with trimming the trees and hanging the garland. We will get started immediately following the morning church service. Many hands make light work!
