If you have any thoughts to share, contact a committee member today. Members of the committee are Pastor Phil, Neil Brewster, Irene Burns, Jessica Howe and Bob Lounsberry.

2016 - We gathered at Kanakadea Park on a warm August afternoon for our annual baptism service and potluck picnic. Keith and Cody were baptized. It was a rainy day, but God cleared the rain for the period of time we spent at the park.
2015 - Sunday afternoon, August 23rd was a beautiful warm sunny day. Following morning worship service, the church family gathered at Kanakadea Park for a potluck picnic and a baptismal service. Carol, Bob and Joe each shared a testimony of what Jesus and baptism means to them. It was a great afternoon. Although several of the church family were enjoying summer vacations, over 35 attended.
