pastor's pen march and april

Dear Church Family, Fall is in the air! I cannot believe how quickly time goes by, can you?

One of the things I've missed most over the past couple weeks is Wednesday night youth group! Fortunately, we've still been able to meet with some of the students every week from 7-8pm on Zoom.
