Please think of foods used for the Thanksgiving meal: Canned yams, green beans, peas, corn, ingredients for pies and cookies, filling mix etc. Your generosity will help other families have a bountiful holiday meal. Thank You.

This fall the group meeting in the Education Building will focus on the Fruits of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Humility, and Self-Control. Join us as we work on growing into the image and likeness of Jesus who is our model for these. In August a Unison Prayer of Confession had these words, “May humility, patience, forbearance and love find their way into our hearts.” As followers of Jesus Christ this is our desire. Questions: Doyle Waybright or Susan Nunamaker
