Good afternoon everyone! We would like to welcome you all to our newly re-designed church website. We will now be posting our weekly announcements, along with other news, on this section of the website. Also, if you are interesting in including a testimony about this church, please email them to Thomas Van Winkle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During today's worship service, Pastor Christopher started a new series, "Leadership Sundays". Today's message was "Leadership Sunday ~ Christian Leadership Character". This message is about the heart of Christian leadership. We hope you watch the worship service when it is posted on YouTube.
Pastor Christopher offers a weekly video message entitled "Christopher's Chat" to summarize the sermon series. CLICK HERE to watch this week's episode of Christopher's Chat.

Any assessment money owed to Classis that is not collected in the blue envelopes must then be drawn from the general fund. Please see any Consistory member with any questions.
