Note from Pastor Rene'

Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. • The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. • A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. 

Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety

Lectionary Reading For This Week

Psalm 19

1 Corinthians 1:18-25

John 2:13-22


Red Wagon Update

Last month we collected 24 boxes of Mac and Cheese. This month’s needed items are Peanut Butter and Jelly.  Let’s see if we can get 50 of each. Remember if each Sunday School class donates 10 of each item we will have enough to meet our need.


Ushers Wanted

We are looking for some new volunteers to help with ushering on Sundays. If you are interested please call or email Misty in the church office.  Each volunteer will attend an usher orientation to prepare

you for the position.
