Higher Grounds

Between Sunday Services
Higher Grounds is our time of fellowship following each of our morning worship services.  It's a time where everyone can enjoy a hot cup of coffee, latte, or cold drink, and a light snack.  Volunteers are always welcome to help with set up, providing food items, serving, making coffee or lattes, and cleaning up. 

Jean Heiss:

"   Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.    "

- 1 Corinthians 10:31
