Deacon Wally Jeffries opened today’s service with gratefulness and thankfulness of the events from yesterday, and a reading from Psalm 65:1-8. He said a prayer, then Worship Pastor Chris Wells led the gathered in song.

The time of Welcome and Fellowship was a time of blessing and gladness as Wells announced that he and his wife were expecting their first child. Hugs and handshakes were plentiful as everyone greeted each other and expressed their happiness to the Wells.
