Church Plant Update

I am thankful for everyone’s continued prayers and support for the church plant. The first few weeks of worshiping together have been joyful and encouraging. Work has begun at our building on N Sycamore Ave, so we hope to be meeting there by mid-Summer. We appreciate the opportunity to keep meeting in the Fellowship Hall at 4pm during this stretch. You all are welcome to drop in and join us any week you’d like. – Pastor Dan

Youth Group Thank You

Last Tuesday night we were blessed to come together as a church family for our Youth Ministry Auction & Dinner. We reached our goal of fully funding the Apex Mission Trip. We raised over $20,000. Thank you to everyone that attended the event, volunteered, or made a donation to the youth ministry. Here are a few personalized thank you notes from our students:
"Thank you so much for supporting youth missions! These are the most treasured years of our youth and we get to love and help others. Thanks for your generosity on behalf of the First E. Free youth. Thank you!!"
"Jesus says to let your light shine for others. You are doing the same with your generosity. You bring light to the church - more than you know!"
