Fruitcake and hot chocolate 2

The Christmas celebration was as an incredible time.

The teens performed a skit and the adult […]

Fall ’15

It was assumed that after the summer months, things would slow down, but God always has a way of surprising us! In September an intern, Meredith, came down to paint a mural.
