Mission Trip to North Carolina
Jan. 7th-12th
On January 7th – 12th, 2019 we will be sending a Mission Team to North Carolina to be part of the rebuilding efforts from Hurricane flooding. We invite you to worship on Sunday, January 6th as we pray for and dedicate the team members and then we covet your prayer support as we travel, work, and live together – and above all – that God’s will may be done in us and through us for the week.
