pleased to know that the renovation is now complete AND that the bills have
all been paid!! We started this project last Dec 2017 with the removal of the
12 burner cooktop followed with the electrical update adding many outlets
not only for convenience but for safety in not blowing fuses.

Adult Bible Study: Judges
Most of us, from time to time, see certain patterns or cycles in our lives. These can be growth patterns or downward cycles, but still they seem to pop up regularly, much like the four seasons. Sometimes we even feel stuck in one place for a while. Nations can experience this as well. This is what happened to the Israelites during the period of time they were led by judges, like Deborah and Samson. Join us as we come together to discern what the Lord has to say to us about our own life patterns through this fascinating Old Testament book! Please bring your Bible and some paper.
