It is with deepest gratitude that we thank all of you for your encouragement to us through your prayers, cards, hugs, and encouraging words. It is such a huge blessing to be part of the fellowship of believers! We covet your continued prayers for us through further treatment that Milo will be receiving.   -- Milo & Nancy Van Dyke



We welcome everyone who came to worship with us today. We will be reminded this morning of what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross so that we may have life everlasting. Jesus says do this in remembrance of me. Thank you, Jesus!
