THANK YOU for helping my friend go to camp with me! She doesn’t have a church to help her. Thank you for paying for half of my Hidden Acres money! My favorite part was riding horses. Love, Natalie S.
Tracie and I would like to THANK the church family for embracing us as the interim pastor couple and for the warm sendoff we received at the annual church picnic.
