Please keep members of our
Church Family in your prayers:

Lucy Diener
Philip & Roseanne Frye
Bev Grant

Olga Kehoe
Natalie Klohck

And any prayers
you may have in your heart

Consider this—
God our Shelter, be a strong presence in the lives of neighbors who, having survived the winds and rains of Harvey, now face grief, uncertainty and weary days. May our generosity in prayer and in tangible signs of support overflow more than floodwaters, to sustain your work of healing and rebuilding and bring comfort and strength to those who suffer.


Sermons & Prayers


Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assis-tance, forms of leadership, various kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all pos-sess gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way. —1 Corinthians 12:27-31

As we reviewed at our Annual Meeting we have reduced the number of elders and deacons on our two boards, this necessitated redoing the committee structure.
There are now three committees with two elders on each of them:

Education, Fellowship & Worship

Liz Custer
Craig Talarico

Mission & Outreach
Brett Dening
Carol Hadcock

Structure /Administration, Finance, Personnel & Stewardship

Carol Larter

Structure /Buildings & Grounds
Jerry Meador
Tom Ruehle

As you can see all of the functions of the church are included and hopefully clumped together in a ra-tional and effective way. Now for your part, the elders are to work in partnership with members of the congregation. Please prayerfully consider where you will feel the most engaged. The way you become part of a committee is to tell the elder that you want to join their particular committee. She or he will joyfully bring you on board.

Gratefully & Faithfully,
Pastor Leonard
