Hiring Update! Our search for a full-time Director of Family and Youth Ministries is currently underway, and we are thrilled to announce that a candidate from Colorado will be visiting this Sunday and Monday, April 14-15. On Sunday evening, Lee and Kristin Bergstrom are opening their home for an Ice Cream Social Meet & Greet, offering families with children in preschool through 12th grade a chance to meet our candidate. If you are interested in attending, please contact Kristin.
