As it may have been noted last Sunday - due to Riddick Hall construction we have few parking lot spaces! Please leave the parking lot for our visitors and families with young children!

Sunday Morning Manager: Mike Icardi

Children’s Ministry Point: Laura Icardi  

In Children’s Ministry (CM): Kiddos learn about how God protects His people (Numbers 22-24) even from words and curses. Balaam could not curse God’s people. God commanded Balaam to bless His people, so Balaam blessed them. Fourteen hundred years after Balaam announced God’s promise, Jesus was born.
