Service Guidelines




            “In this world you shall have trials and tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) This is the whole point!  The world came at us with something that we have never seen before.  But with God, patience, and good old common sense, we have all shown that everything is possible!
