APPLE BUTTER PRE-ORDER FORMS: At the entrance of the sanctuary are “Apple Butter Pre-Order Forms”. These help us to have an idea of what your initial order might be so that we can set aside an adequate amount for Heritage Days.
Please also use this form on Apple Butter making days so we can put your order together.
Please remember that the apple butter will not be available for removing until we have completed the apple butter and have a firm count of production. Basically it’s not to be removed until we have specifically set it aside.

When you are loved well, you want more of it. The only reason I believe anyone would not desire to be a disciple of Christ is because they fail to realize just how well loved they are by him. How could you not want to be with someone who loves you well?” ― Sandra M. Michelle
Some people will not make the decision to give Jesus love back no matter how great his love is. These folks are who I call “grace users”. They just take advantage of the Lord’s love and kindness. True disciples will love the Lord back. When someone truly opens their heart and falls in love with Jesus, wanting to be his disciple will come naturally to them. Christ’s love is compelling.” ― Sandra M. Michelle
