We are also looking for more helpers in the studio. It would be great to use that space more often.

Youth Cafe is Open!

Spread the word. Youth Cafe is open last Friday of each month. (closed for November, but back in December)
September we had John Messner and a team from First Baptist. Music was sweet. Coffee was delicious, and John brought the Gospel. 
Hope to see many kids out for October.
