He started his journey as an unknown carpenter, but Joseph became the earthly father of Jesus. For his part in the nativity story, he faced a situation much like our own - encountering life circumstances he didn't choose or understand. His courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity. Join us beginning November 18th from 10am - 10:45 (during Sunday School). Nursery is available! Led by Tim & Debbie Williams

The envelopes can be placed in the offering plate. All proceeds will be used for Youth Missions and expenses. Displays will be up from November 4th to December 30th.
