Thanks to all of the volunteers who worked so very hard to make this year’s Vacation Bible School a success. Setting up displays, registering and keeping track of participants; preparing and serving meals and then picking up and cleaning up afterwards; instructing and coordinating classroom activities; story-telling, crafts and music.  In addition to all the hands-on volunteers, we thank all the parents and of course the children for their participation.

God Bless You All!

The final approval for the Discovery of Learning rental agreement has been received. Beginning on September 4th, children will be on campus and we must be sensitive to our new tenant’s desire to responsibly care for their students.

During the school hours M-Th 8:30 am to 3:00 pm you are asked to enter the church facilities either from the Deglet Noor side or from the gate closest to the Fellowship Hall. Also, the breezeway restrooms are reserved for the students and faculty.  Please use the sanctuary restrooms or the youth room restroom (accessed from the counting room).

The Trustees will be providing a full update next month.


We ask that you remember to sign up to help with the Church services on Sunday morning.  There is always a need for your help to usher, greeter, host coffee fellowship and be the liturgist. 

Thank you and God Bless.

Together we have completed another C-3 project creating a totally new look in our narthex and sanctuary.  Jeanine Lee of Rescon did a wonderful job providing the carpet tiles and installers at a cost of $6,000 less than the nearest competitor.  We hope you are all pleased with the results which we believe have created a new and fresh appearance.  We also hope you’ll support the next major C-3 project, the painting and repairing of the high vaulted walls and ceiling in our sanctuary.  Your exceptional support to date has resulted in a modernization of our entire church and a great first impression with guests and visitors. 

Drew Patterson and his grandfather, Bill Greenman, have completed the new Worship Arts and Welcome Center.  It is beautiful and everyone should stop by and visit our new center.  Please notice the detail and quality in the construction and the beautiful art work, all completed by Bill. 

 We are creating an Emergency Preparedness facility in the closet area between the two breezeway restrooms will house all the items we will need (according to our Conference) in case of an emergency or natural disaster.
