October is Pastor Appreciation Month

Please join us in prayer for the pastors in our community. We would be thankful if you would pray specifically for our Pastor Appreciation Breakfast, October 19.

We are looking forward to sharing in a time of fellowship and encouragement with those who serve and share the gospel in our communities every day. "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9
