CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IS GROWING! We are needing to create some additional space for our children’s department to help with the greater diversity of ages that are attending. If there are any books in the current library space that are of interest to you personally, you are invited to take them by December 1st. Cleaning the library space will be part of a comprehensive full sanctuary level interior cleaning going into the winter months. If you haven’t noticed all exteriors of all buildings have already been done and they look great.
