Thank You Veterans

Veterans Day is set aside to remember all those who served in our armed forces during times of war and peace.

Theo Teaches Christian Theology to Children

We had a fantastic first Sunday evening discussion of "I Will" last week. If you were unable to join us, no problem, be sure to come this Sunday at 6:00 pm in the Reception room.

Theo is a great way to learn some basic Baptist theology in a fun and entertaining way. We will answer questions like, why do we believe the … [Read more...]
