Last Sunday morning, it was announced that  Dave & Cindy Conway have expressed their desire to serve with us under our shepherds’ oversight.  They have been worshipping with us for quite awhile and their address and phone number are in the church’s directory.  We welcome them into the StC church family.  They will be in Care Group B.


Since today is a “fifth-Sunday,” all of the contribution will go toward paying off the loan on the Reservoir Road property.


As discussed in our congregational meeting last Sunday evening, the shepherds are interested in borrowing money for our future expansion. The money will be paid back within approximately 2 years with an additional 3% interest. If you are interested, please contact one of the shepherds by Wednesday evening. —Thanks…Dennie, Rob & Skip.
