Dear Church,


This Saturday, our new 2018 Ad Council will join for the first time for Leadership Training. Please keep these dedicated people in your prayers as they begin or continue in their roles as Holy Covenant leaders.  


This Sunday, the children’s choirs resume rehearsals. There’s a choir for your child!
