Putting our hands together to make things happen

Whether you want to create a poster for a special event or prepare the trays for communion, there are needs that match your talents and time.  Our paid staff is very small, so much of what we do is dependent on the time and talents of members.

" And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good."

2 Thessalonians  3:13
