A reminder about the Food Pantry Produce Market: Next Friday, November 17, will be the last produce market of 2017. Please share this reminder with others.



Check out this great opportunity to build friendship in Christ:


What is Faith Partners? It’s two people getting together to share thoughts about life and to ask the question, “Where am I noticing or not noticing God in the middle of this time of my life?” It’s two people being open and honest with one another, admitting and discussing both faith and doubts. It’s two people praying and listening as they share friendship in Christ. We invite you to sign up in the lobby; faith partners will be paired up at the end of November. If you and a friend want to sign up together, please put your names together on the sign-up sheet.
