Looking Back a Year Ago – One year ago on October 23, 2016, we held our first morning worship service in this building.  What a blessing it has been to have a foyer, a larger auditorium, more SS rooms, a large basement.  We praise the Lord!  And we express appreciation to those who have continued to work at making this building useable for our congregation.
