Thank You North Branch!

by Church Admin

Thank You North Branch for all the sympathy cards, the greetings, emails, and love shown over the last few weeks. I loved my MamMaw very much – as you could probably tell… and to have a church that is supportive through loss is a gift. Thank you for that! More so, thank you for the […]

Where do you see God?…

by Church Admin

There’s a board on my office door that’s a place for people to draw where they see God —– and I am always amazed what people draw. One person drew corn and the sun, and God knows God is the one we depend on out here for life and a living, for sunshine and rain! […]
