A Message from Pastor Dana Coker

​Dear Church Family and Friends,

When someone joins our church, I always ask them, "as a member of this congregation, will you faithfully participate in its ministries by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service and your witness?" 

I've been thinking a lot about what that commitment means lately, because it is going to be our theme on Laity Sunday, October 15th.

I've been reminded just how powerful we are when we are all putting those five commitments into practice! That is truly how to make our church the healthiest it can be!

Thank you for the ways you faithfully participate in the life of our church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness! You make us all better!

Join me in reflecting on these five commitments and how you live them out. If you find that maybe you haven't been very intentional about participating in one or more of these ways lately, I hope you might decide to renew your commitment to it!

We need you! And actually, you need us too! That's how the Body of Christ was designed.

I'm so proud and thankful to be part of such an awesome church family. God's got important work for us to do together!!

In Christ,
