· The Deacons have coordinated several projects over the last couple of months which have been very proactive in protecting and stewarding the facilities God has provided us.  A few of those are: painting the steel beams and cross, re-working the concrete around the base of the cross, adding recycled asphalt to the dirt road serving the rental house, tree work and many other small projects.  Thank You, Deacons!

· Please save the date for the upcoming Encounter Prayer Event on Friday, September 30th.  More information is coming soon!
