    A Reminder to the Ministries

    With the Christmas carols playing on the radio and in the malls, it is also the cue for the ministries to start their budget planning for 2018.

Please use the budget template available at the church office. Initial presentation is set for October 7 from 8 am to 12 noon.

    Sermon #8: Shining Testimony: Our Life in Christ-2

    Today’s message is the second part of living our Christian life as a testimony in this world. As we were part of darkness before coming to Christ, it was by the grace of God that we experienced salvation. We can never repay Him for this. What the Lord desires as a sign of our gratitude is for us to live our lives to please Him.
