First of all, I apologize for the lack of menu postings the last 2 weeks due to illness and travel. I probably need to get a blog assistance to keep things current when I can’t get to it. I heard they had about 300 in attendance for each of the last 2 weeks. Sometimes it’s hard to get out when the weather is so cold and icy, but the Wednesday meals and services still go on unless school is cancelled. The church website archives the videos of services that you can watch if you want to see what you missed when you can’t get there in person. Here’s the link to the service last week. The Wednesday school kids sang and Pastor David’s message focused on building relationships within the church https://vimeo.com/318734666
