Grow Book of the Year – Each year Pastor Brad likes to recommend and make available a “Book of the Year” to our church family. He typically chooses devotional books that are timeless classics. The book he is recommending this year is no exception. “This Day with the Master” by Dennis Kinlaw is a book that Pastor Brad has read and benefited from greatly in his Christian walk. We have purchased a supply of these books and are making them available at the Welcome Center for $13.50. If more books are needed, we will order more.

A note from Pastor Leslie: Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers while my mother was in the hospital. She was near death’s door at times, but the Lord had His hand upon her, and thanks to your prayers she is expected to make a full recovery. Your notes of encouragement, phone calls, and messages really helped to bring my family and me through a very difficult time, and I am so appreciative of your thoughts and prayers, as well as your friendship. Blessings to you this Christmas Season, and thank you again for your outpouring of Love. -Pastor Leslie Davies
