Sunday Service

This morning we were able to join the community in celebrating the 71st anniversary of the church. Many church members spoke and performed songs for the service. Christa also shared some stories and an encouraging word and our team got to share a song with the congregation. This was the seventh time the team got to attend church here so it was a great time to reunite with old friends.
