Choir Rehearsals are held on  
Thursdays at 7:00 pm.
Choir Rehearsals are held on Thursdays at 7:00 pm.  If you know of any potential choir members;  don't be shy to ask them to join.  We will meet in the choir room on the second floor of the Parish Hall.  All are welcome to join the choir.  Reading music is not a prerequisite.  What is needed is enthusiasm, an enjoyment to sing and become a member of a group of friends who support each other in the ministry of prayer through song.  Plus we have a lot of fun, laughter and fellowship.  I look forward to seeing and hearing you all soon!    Gregory

Love INC - Please keep our clients in your prayers! You don't need to know their names or their particular issues - God already knows all of that - but ask that their various needs (health, job and education, relationships, connection with a church) may be met. Then take a deep breath and give praise and thanks to God for the needs He has already met!
Love INC's 8th Annual Cookie Walk is happening on Saturday, February 13th 
from 9 am - 2 pm at the
