A note from Pastor Greg Mesimore:
What follows is a meditation one of our church members, Kenneth Kling, wrote.

Photo of an invitationThe most important thing we have to offer as a church is an invitation to experience new life in Christ. In the Bible we learn that God gives new life to any person who trusts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. A trusting personal relationship with Jesus is all that is needed to be a Christian. We invite you to read the following article, ” How to Become a Christian,” by Covenant Pastor Wesley W. Nelson.
