Congregational Meeting Results. Thank-You to everyone who attended our Congregational Meeting.  We also want to thank Shelley Oosterhouse, Rod Verrips, and Jeff Villafania for their service as elders and deacon for the past 3 years.  Selected as new elders are Grant Padmos and Jim Chiappe, and our new deacon is Jack Nelson!  We also approved the creation of a new part-time Youth & Community Life staff position.  Finally, the proposed 2017-18 Budget was approved.  We are excited about what God is doing and where He is bringing us in the year to come!

Administrative Position. After 12 years, Suzy is wrapping up her time as our church Administrator.  As a result, we have decided to combine her position and our existing Administrative Assistant position into a single part-time Admin position.  If you or someone you know might be interested, please view the job description and apply through the Employment page on our website. Deadline for applications is May 28.
