So, yesterday in worship we celebrated what happened over the course of the week at our Vacation Bible Camp (yes we call it camp and not school because camp is more fun than school).  It was a great opportunity for the congregation to experience what the kids learned during the week.  We had the kids [...]

OK – So, I’m thinking of changing colors

You know, I’ve been looking at this black and blue screen and text and am thinking about changing to a different theme.  It’s still water based but it’s got more orange.  Oh, and the background is white with black text.  I think it will make things easier to read.  The site just looks too dark.  [...]

Shaun in concert tonight

One final reminder that tonight is the free Shaun Groves concert.  In case you were wondering what I mean when I say free – that means no admission charge, no cover charge, no drink minimum (yes – that was a joke), nada, zilch, zip.  You come, you hear some music, you hear some speaking, you [...]
