Love the Tract Rack? Many, many thanks to Kathleen Fowler who has been lovingly ordering the tracts and organizing them. Kathleen is now looking to pass the baton. If you love spreading the good news and are quite organized, then this would be a cool ministry for you! Please call the church office if you are interested.

MegaForce Recap – We had an amazing time last Saturday and Sunday watching Steve Carrier perform amazing feats of strength while sharing his testimony and the gospel. Many, many thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make the event safe and run smoothly. Over both nights, there were roughly 700 in attendance and  90 professions of new faith/rededications. Thank you also to all who gave towards the
MegaForce ministry as well! To God be all the Glory!
