About Worship on Sunday 9/30

Join us for a traditional worship service at 8:30 am, or contemporary worship at 10:45 am!

They appeal to Jesus, as Joshua did to Moses about the elders who prophesied without official authorization. Like Moses, Jesus refuses to see this as a threat.

About Worship 9/9

I hope everyone is having a fun DJJD weekend! Worship with us at 9:00 am, and stay for coffee & fellowship before heading off to the carnival and parade one last day!
