Beginning today (yes, actually today, God willing! Our apologies for the mis-publication last week), we are starting the process of seeking to add new deacons. Including today, we will have two sermons on the work and qualifications of deacons. This Wednesday (September 24th), we will have two weeks of interactive classes on Wednesday to further discuss deacons. Beginning October 5th, we will have two weeks to submit names of men from among us who fit the qualifications of deacons laid out in Scripture, and can serve within our areas of need. Please make every effort to participate in these teaching opportunities, and please be praying about the process.


We wish to congratulate John & Elaine Sambuco at the marriage of their son Ryan to Allison Fox on September 13 in Sandusky, Ohio.
