GUEST SPEAKER
We welcome Troy Gahman to the pulpit this morning. We are looking forward to his message as we begin our missions emphasis month.  A love offering will be received.

New Young Adult Bible Study – Prodigal God
The story of the Prodigal Son is one that has particularly captivated individuals since Jesus told it in the 1st century AD. But a fresh look at the story will help us realize that God shows his grace both to the rebel as well as the law-keeper. Join us as we study this parable on Thursday nights.
