CKY – Covenant Kids and Youth!

We had a good turn out for the new schedule.  If you haven’t checked it out, we’ll meet again on January 24.  

January 17  is a holiday weekend so youth are going to Broom Ball, meeting at the church at 5:30 pm

See the separate article for the schedule for CKY through April.


Joys and Concerns:  Dan Kasten took a turn for the worst today, but I just received a phone call that the doctors have found the right mix of meds and he is stabalizing. Prayers for this dear man and his family.


Laticia Gonzalez will be induced on Thursday morning. She will let us know when daughter Alexiah is born.
