Each of these groups selected members from their organizations to be recipients of a monetary gifts from proceeds raised the annual Pork Chop and Chicken dinner sponsored by church that is held each August.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

It was a privilege to honor our nation's veterans and to say thank you for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Mark your calendar on Sunday, Dec. 8, as Barb Kronau-Sorensen will be presenting a free Community Christmas Concert at 2 p.m. at the church.

Sunday worship is at 9 a.m. at the church, 11821 E Grant Hwy. (Route 20), just north of the Hampshire Marengo exit off I-90.
