2021 Feb 27: Heartfelt Thanks 

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the kindness, love, and appreciation you showered on us last Sabbath. Thank you for being our family. We are so blessed! May God continue His work in, and through, us as we press forward together to further His kingdom. Sincerely, Pastor Michael and Karen. 

 

2021 Feb 27: 10 Days of Prayer

10 Days of Prayer will take place March 3 - 13 each evening, except Sabbaths, from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. The theme this year is Seeking Revival. We postponed this event in the hope we'd be able to enjoy in-person sessions and we're happy to go ahead with those plans. COVID safety protocols will be in place, naturally, so please accept this as a personal invitation to our 10 Days of Prayer, 2021.

We are now opening a second Mobile Food Pantry day the last Sunday of every month, right here in our own parking lot!

This includes a driver and a few people to load in the morning and unload in the afternoon. Our first service is scheduled for January 24th from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Drivers training will be held Sunday 17th at 10:00 am at the Eagle Church. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Diana Wyland.
