Choir Director, Allene Cadwallader leads the choir every Sunday morning during this service.

Our children are our legacy. They’re constantly reaching for the future and are most likely to live up to what you believe of them. Believe in your children like God believes in YOU! Show our children the way, the truth and the light! Children are the living message we send to a time we will not see. Let THIS generation be the ones to carry on our God and share the truth with others like no one has before!
