  • Need a ride? Can you give a ride? If either of these apply to you as you come to church, please let one of the pastors or elders know. We would like to make sure everyone who would like to is able to come to church on Sundays, and if a ride would help someone, we want to see if we can connect people who may be able to serve or be served in this way. Thank you!
