Fellowship Sundays:
The first Sunday of each month we go over to Jimmy Johns at 11:00am
and enjoy breaking bread with one another as a youth group.
Students are asked to bring $7, the church will cover the rest of the cost
for the lunch box special for each student.

If a student does not have $7 to spend on lunch, the church will cover their whole meal.

In This Bible Study We Will:

Circle of Love-
The Friendship Circle-
Circle of Grace-
Circle of Faith-

The Circle of Love meets the second Tuesday of every month (except July and August) at 7:00pm. Our focus is, of course, serving our community by addressing the needs of women, children and elders to the best of our abilities.
