The 150th Anniversary Directories are in!  If you didn't get yours on Sunday, May 3, the directories will be available in the church office during the week.  We will also distribute them before and after church the next few Sundays.  If you are not pictured in the directory, they are available for purchase at $5.00 per directory. 

Watch the Sunday Announcements on the Big Screen before worship to see all the individuals and businesses whose donations helped make our celebration such a huge success.  Thank you!
