It is an exciting season in the life of our church. We recently moved from a 90 year old, landlocked, downtown building to a residential part of town. Our new location is providing lots of opportunity for outreach to the neighboring schools and homes. We have also been given a building to steward in the impoverished area of our community. With this property we have launched a free meal and an emergency infant services room. We are so excited about the relationships we are building and the doors that are being opened to share the gospel of Christ.
