Connect Our Dream To Our Future

Celebration Commitment Sunday!
Today is Celebration Commitment Sunday for the Connect Capital Campaign. After weeks of prayer, and four weeks of sermons, it is the desire of the church to build a Family Life Outreach Center.  ET's goal is to raise $3 million in pledges over the next three years.  Commitment cards will be turned in today and a 'First Fruits' offering will be collected in each service.  Today, Pastor will be preaching the final message of the series, 'Looking Forward.'
