Happy Mother’s Day and Matriarchy Sunday!
Happy Mother’s Day to all who mother our children and our church. Special thanks to our amazing women leaders who love and guide our church so faithfully. Also, in honor of Matriarchy Sunday, Bryan Jon and Isaac Sanborn are making fried chicken and fries in the “Big Daddy Chicken” food truck outside, which Bryan donated to the church. To cover cost, a $5-$10 donation is appreciated!
