Letter to the Church

Thank you for joining us for worship this week.

Today, we continue our message series - THE BLESSING. We are looking at the early fathers of our faith as we study Genesis 24-34. This week we study Genesis 27 as we study the impact "striving to get things your way" can have on the family.

I pray that your participation in today's worship helps to move you closer to Jesus and reveals more of his plan for your life.

A Letter to our Church Family

Grace and peace to you all! 2020 was a year none of us will forget any time soon for sure. As a church, It began with our UMC denomination on the precipice of splitting along theological and ideological lines within the year; only to have that problem replaced by a global pandemic.
