Feb. 12 Services Still Will Be Held
Despite weather forecasts of some snow on Sunday morning, February 12, 2017, the prediction is that conditions should be amenable for many to gather for worship at both 8 and 10 AM. Therefore, while we urge people to exercise caution as conditions develop, and the choir may hold off on singing their scheduled anthems, we will still hold both services, and Rev. Ashley will preach on faith and science. God bless you!
-Rev. Adam, Senior Pastor
