Child Dedication & Parent Dedication Class

Child dedication is a special time where parents dedicate themselves, their child, and their parenting efforts to God. Why? We do this so that when your child is old enough to understand, they too can choose to follow Jesus.

If you are interested in dedicating your child we encourage you to attend an informational class prior to the dedication on March 5 at 12:30pm. Childcare will be provided for those who register.

Shoe Drive

Please donate your shoes in the Shoe Bin in the Back of the Community Room through Sunday, March 5th. Donate serviceable used shoes, fairly new shoes, or even brand new shoes. Brand name running shoes will go to kids in Ferguson, Missiouri. Other shoes will help “micro-entrepreneurs” in Africa. For more information contact Nina at
