A Message From Our Pastor  
Dear friends and family,

It seems that 2018 is just soaring by! In my former life as a teacher, this would be a season of preparation. The classroom must be prepared. As much information as possible concerning each student is to be reviewed. And, because I am a woman of faith, it would be a time of prayer. Prayer for the families. Prayer for the children. Prayer for those in administration.

In my current life, it is also a season of preparation. Very soon we will be talking about stewardship, Thanksgiving, and even Christmas. Likewise, it is also season of Prayer. As we look to this season as a church family, we get to wrestle with these two things. What remains unchanging is our striving to be the church God has called us to be in the community where we are planted.

So I solicit your prayers, not only for our children, their teachers and administrators, but also for ourselves. I encourage us to strive for our highest and best. Have a blessed fall season.

Pastor Althea
