SPLASH TODAYDonations are always warmly welcomed, and with your continued support, we will be able to sustain this valuable ministry to young families.


GRIEF MINISTRYPart of the Social Committee is Grief Ministry. Joyce Osborn is spearheading this ministry with Pr. Perkins’ and God’s guidance and help.  When a loved one dies, Joyce sends a set of four books called “Journeying through Grief” throughout the first year. Each book describes the issues and feelings that a person tends to encounter at various points of grief and the books offer suggestions on handling them.  If Pastor Perkins or Joyce can be of any help or if you have any questions during a time of grief, please contact either of them.


DUE TO GOVERNMENT REGULATIONSIn the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), churches and clergy can no longer make written or oral public announcements of health information regarding our members.  Thus, unless specifically requested by a member to share other information, we are only able to indicate where a person is hospitalized or that they have been discharged.
