Upcoming Events

It has come to our attention that an email is circulating, supposedly from Paster Toni, asking for money or for you to purchase gift cards. This is not from Pastor Toni! Please do not respond, do not send any information or money, and delete the email from your computer! It would not hurt to run a virus scan on your computer if you have received an email like this.

Please help spread the word so no one is hurt by this scam. If you have any questions, please call the church office.
