Feed 'em, Teach 'em & Love 'em, our elementary-aged ministry, needs your help. We need drivers to pick up the kids on Sunday morning and return them home after worship. We need people to help cook breakfast at 8 am. We need volunteers to help create the weekly activity packets for families. (Driving and working with children requires certification through our Safe Gatherings process, it's an easy online training and background-checking service) Call the church office to volunteer, or support this important ministry financially.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the Giving Tree Distribution.
