  • This Week with Pastor Dave Merciful Father, we offer with joy and thanksgiving, what you have first given us - our selves, our time, and our possessions, signs of your gracious love.

  • Gratitude Board You will notice the “Gratitude Board” in the Narthex.  There are stickers beside the board where you can write down something you are grateful for this week and put it on the board. Adding your name is optional and you may list as any many things as you like; add something each week.  As our church focuses on gratitude and God’s Grace in Action let’s make our gratitude known! The most obvious lesson in Christ’s teaching is that there is no happiness in having or getting anything, but only in giving.  ~ Henry Drummond
