Homecoming was Awesome!

Our District Superintendent, Sky McCracken, preached at our 162nd Homecoming Sunday, August 21 at 11 am.  Music was led by our Praise Team. Families and friends came to worship and testify and pray and praise with us and then stayed for a potluck fellowship meal afterwards. Everyone was invited and welcome, no exceptions!  Video of the service will be posted “soon.”

Save the date for our next Homecoming, August 20, 2017!
