During the July 2nd Worship Service we had three special moments:

1. Carol Camp presented a beautiful Quilt of Valor she made to WWII veteran Don Pittman. Photos will be in our August newsletter.

2. Lance Camp, accompanied by Carol Camp on piano, sang "God Bless America".

3. Carisa Turner, daughter of Pam and Bob Jurgens, performed an original composition titled "Lift You High".

Both of these musical selections can be heard here! On the left, click the drop down box titled "We Are Inspired". Then click on "Recent Sermons". When that opens, you'll see the links that are named with the song titles for July 2nd. You can also listen to Pastor Rachel's short sermon!

This year of 2017 we celebrate our 160th anniversary!

In 1857 Rev. Thomas Cotton, a Methodist Circuit Rider, held services in private homes

and in 1861/62 a church building was built.

Many changes have been made over the years to the physical building

but, by God's good grace, the spirit remains the same!

 

We were treated to an original composition by Don Peterson during September 4th's (2016) Worship Service.

To listen to "Sophie's Melody ", click on "We are Inspired" on the left and open "Recent Sermons".
