Moms of All Ages ....  We are reading the book "More for Mom" by Kristin Funston and talking about what it means to live a holy life while trying to meet all the demands placed on mothers today.  This book is a stepping stone to help all mothers reset their spiritual and emotional health, habits and relationship with God.  Join us on Thursday mornings at 10am.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

We will be reading the book “Before Amen” by Max Lucado.  Have you wondered if you're praying "right."  The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance, too - in fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.  In this book we will be taken to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps.  We will be reminded that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few.  Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child.  Join as we learn about this conversation.

A new email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. has been set up for announcements you wish to be placed in the Bulletin, Enlightener, Newsletter, etc. This email address will automatically distribute your information to Tonya Chandler, Carole Cover, Alison DeVack and Pastor Karin.  No more guessing who to send your information to.  Please make certain to have all bulletin and e-Enlightener information in by Tuesday of each week and all newsletter information in by the 24th of each month.  Thank you!  

THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU!  Being part of a connecting group is one of the commitments we make when we join the church.
