HANGING OF THE GREENS & CARRY-IN: The season of Advent is just a few weeks away, which means preparing ourselves as well as the church for the holidays. On Sunday, November 26th we will gather to decorate the church and Family Life Center during our annual Hanging of the Greens, beginning at 3:00pm. MUCH help is needed. Bring a pot of soup and/or sandwiches and join us in the FLC for a bite to eat afterwards. The more the merrier!

Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference. – Max Lucado

If you believe in prayer at all, expect God to hear you. If you do not expect, you will not have. God will not hear you unless you believe He will hear you; but if you believe He will, He will be as good as your faith. – Charles Spurgeon
