PASSION Conference 2022:
Once again our 18-25 year old young adults will be traveling to Atlanta GA for the Passion Conference January 1-4, 2022. This conference has been life changing for our young adults in the past. We have asked those attending to pay for their ticket which is $100+ along with an additional $50 to help cover the costs. As many of those going are paying for college, this can be a burden and we do not want this to keep someone from attending. If you would be interested in helping this group get to Atlanta, we are currently accepting donations to make this happen. If you have questions, please see Steve or Jaynee Christner. Thanks so much for helping us get to The Passion!

Round Tables with Jesus:
Beginning on Sunday January 9th, Herman Yoder and Mark Sharick will be offering a time to connect, “Round Tables with Jesus” a Bible study which will meet from 9:30-10:15am on Sunday mornings in the Meeting Place. They will be going through the book of Romans. All are invited! For more information, please contact Herman Yoder or Mark Sharick.

The church office will be closed Monday, Dec. 27- Friday Dec. 31. If you need assistance with anything, please contact one of our pastors.
