What an encouraging time this has been for the church family!  We rejoice in the ways that God used our church family in a contagious way: we were able to put together 82 shoe boxes to send to children overseas through “Operation Christmas Child”; we put together and delivered 6 generous Thanksgiving Food Baskets to […]
