We extend our prayers and sympathy to Danny Niederhofer and his family upon the death of his brother, David Niederhofer, today, November 18.  Arrangements for a memorial service at his church in Oklahoma are pending at this time.

If you have not yet returned your financial commitment card for 2015, please complete and bring it with you this Sunday.  You will have the opportunity to bring your card to the altar as we continue to give gratitude to God through worship.

Help decorate the sanctuary this Sunday, November 23, at 3:00 p.m.  Bring the family!
