Scheduled for Sunday, October 8, 2023, this gathering serves as a pivotal moment for our congregation to reflect on the past year's accomplishments and set our sights on the future.

It's a time when members come together to discuss important matters, review our financial stewardship, and elect leaders who will guide us in the coming year.

Beyond the administrative aspects, it's a day filled with spiritual inspiration, fellowship, and a deep sense of unity.

This Months Scripture

I Kings 19:9b-13
And the word of the Lord came to him: "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
10 He replied, "I have been very zealous for the Lord God Almighty. The Israelites have rejected your covenant, torn down your altars, and put your prophets to death with the sword. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me too."
11 The Lord said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by."
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. 13 When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave.
Then a voice said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
