In our March 29 newsletter, we shared information about a new organization called Allen TX CAREs for our older adults, a new bible study for the ladies that kicked off on March 30, and an update on our summer musical. Simply click HERE to read those stories.
We’ve also posted a new schedule for our Youth Ministry activities that are all online. Contact Youth Pastor Ed Whipple to get connected.
We also want to remind you to send us a family picture. We’ll be putting your face in the pews to remind us of our church family as we bring you worship every Sunday until we are together again. You can email your pictures to Alison Thomas.
Stay safe and stay home, as we continue to be Better Together (but apart for now).
