 COMMUNITY WORSHIP AND PICNIC
On Sunday August 13th 139 adults and 30+ children came together to worship, celebrate and share a feast in the Park!  The children sang some songs for us.
The weather looked a bit iffy but God was gracious to us and the sun shined as we worshiped.  Pastor Jeff gave the message.  Pastor Paul (aka Apostle Paul) offered a word of encouragement and Pastor Kevin along with New Life band lead our praise.  The tables groaned from all the food that was shared.
We already look forward to next year!
Thank you to all who made this event such a success
