Special, Seasonal, and Occasional Events
You will find on this page a listing of special events that our community looks forward during the year. These events are in addition to our regularly scheduled weekly activities (i.e., worship service, fellowship & small group meetings, Sunday School, prayer meeting). Some of these special events are meant to help us grow to maturity in Christ. Others are community builders. Some may be fund-raisers. You are welcome at all of them. Please feel free to contact the church for more information.
