Book Share, located on the shelves to the left of the Welcome Center, is growing thanks to those who have already donated books. Our purpose is that you have the opportunity to read some of these books. Just borrow, read and return them. There is also a space for children’s books. We welcome your book donations! Books should be current or classic, wholesome, and in good condition. Leave them in the large basket so they can be tagged. Thanks! Marilyn Ash and Kay Carlson.
Our Worship Services are recorded digitally. If you are interested in getting a recording of any service you may go to the Welcome Center and sign up for either a CD copy or an mp3 file.
