We will be joining with our sister Nazarene churches--Oak Grove, Parkway, and Trinity--for a combined GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE at 7:00 p.m. on April 18th.  This will be hosted by our Trinity Church of the Nazarene located at 1645 South 44th Street.  Those interested in singing in a combined choir will meet thirty-minutes prior to the service for a brief practice.  We invite you to join with us as we remember our Lord's passion. 

EXODUS ROAD Fundraiser Dinner

Our teen group is hosting a SPAGHETTI DINNER fundraiser following our worship service on Sunday, April 27th.  This fundraiser IS NOT for anything for our teens, although our Teens requested they be allowed to do this.  All the profits will go to Exodus Road, an organization that rescues children who are victims of human trafficking.  The financial needs for this rescue ministry are great.  This special fund-raising meal will be in our Fellowship Hall beginning at approximately 12:30 p.m. on April 27th.  The cost is $8 for adults and $6 for children.  Extra donations will be greatly appreciated!  Please pre-register at the Welcome Center in the church foyer or by emailing the church office using the link here on the homepage of our web site.
