We pray that 2014 will be a year of peace and joy and growth for you and your family. We pray that your faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior will be strengthened through your time in His Word and by regular attendance at worship in His House.

We are thankful for the great weather and great crowd of guests for our Oktoberfest on October 19th. About 1056 people enjoyed our delicious German dinner! Next year's event will again be on the 3rd Sunday in October, which will be Sunday, October 18th. To God be the Glory!

May we daily seek to be the
hands and feet of Jesus to all we come in contact with.

Our new worship year has begun, with our theme being "Let us run with perserverance the race set out for us." Hebrews 12:1b May God bless us as we seek to share His love with all we meet and run the race of faith together.
