Mother’s Day Brunch

We are grateful for the many guests who joined us for Mother's Day.  What a better way to spend Mother's Day than in church.  Pastor Damron preached a convicting message about the transforming power of the gospel, and afterward all visiting mothers and their families were invited for a special brunch.  Praise the Lord for the dining hall being filled with over 220 mothers and their families.
