It's Our Turn


When I am at worship in our sanctuary, I am amazed at the beauty of this place. It is stirring to hear the great organ, to see the stained-glass windows and let their Biblical message come

in such dramatic fashion. The warmth of the building itself seems to give a welcome to us each Sunday. How fortunate we are that there were people who did not even know us, but

seemed to know we would need the blessing of our church. They gave and gave sacrificially for us and our families. Now it is our turn to support the ministries of this church. Please, please pray, dig deep, and be committed to financially give in the days ahead. Be prepared to make your estimate known on November 14 and sign on the dotted line.
