We are glad that you have chosen to worship with us today. If we can help you in any way, please let us know by filling out the information card in the pews or contacting one of our elders or deacons.

God is holy and worthy of our praise and adoration. "Holy and reverend is His name." Please keep the sanctuary a quiet place.

We believe in prayer! If you would like to spend some extra time in prayer after the 11 am service meet in the room behind the piano.

Thank you for supporting our Christmas in July Mentone 10/40 Missions projects! Your contributions thus far have helped translate evangelistic and health materials into the Urdu language to train hundreds of gospel workers there, helped construct two churches, and much more! This is our main project throughout the end of the year so please consider giving generously.

We want to say a special thank you to those who donated blood last Sunday. Watch this video to learn about the importance of giving blood. Please consider being part of this outreach project next time.
