Song Services:  The Worship Committee is planning for our monthly song services for the remainder of the year.  The Committee would like to have requests from the congregation, but without the hymnals in the pews, we need your input ahead of time to be able to project the chosen songs.  There is a box at the ‘Welcome Center’ to submit your song request.  Please write your name and song title on the paper provided and put the paper in the box.  We look forward to hearing from you and singing praise to God together again for our monthly song service.


The Cadets’ Pizza Coupon Sale is cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
