Our hearts are so sad this morning! Lightening struck our church last night resulting in a total loss of our building from fire. We are blessed that our fellowship hall was able to be saved and we will worship there until we are able to rebuild. Please keep all of our members in your prayers! We love you and thank you! God bless you!
