We will be teaching at Ambrose University over the next school year. Our focus will be to encourage the young people studying there to be open to God’s calling on their lives to take the message of the Gospel to the parts of the world that have never yet had an opportunity to hear of God’s love for them.
  • HUGE THANKS from Pastor Andrew and Amy to all who donated items for their food pantry. It is greatly appreciated.
  • CONDOLANCES to the family of Diane Shepherd - who recently passed away.
