Chapel Service
You are invited to join us for our weekly chapel service this Thursday, April 9th from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. Our chapel service message will be presented by Pastor Ewings. This week’s theme will consider how living for Jesus means joy in his resurrection. Families and friends are invited to come join us in starting our day with the Lord.
