Our Kindergarten Class ventured to Tuttles Orchard last week. It was a HOT day, but they had a great time picking pumpkins, learning about apples, drinking apple cider, and playing on the playground.


Thank you to everyone who contributed in some way to make our "Oktoberfest" an over whelming success. We had over 350 people in attendance including our numerous volunteers. Thanks also to Griffin Flooring for being a corporate sponsor. We also thank our School Choirs for leading us in worship, and we celebrated the retirement of Pastor Jim Link. We were reminded that It's Still All About Jesus even 165 years later.
