We also present many activities that include the public (ex. plays, charity motorcycle ride, missions, and a large Vacation Bible School. We are always looking to expand our community outreach activities. This is a great place to raise a family. A minister with a wife as a partner, especially if she loves youth ministry, is what we are praying for. We have a very nice parsonage and, we feel, a competitive employment package, especially for a small church in a small town.
