STS Superheroes!

Sunday night, Nov. 16th, our gym was transformed into a superhero wonderland! We had such an awesome time with our STS families with a cape-making competition, some pretty great home-made costumes, watching Captain America, and lots of time on the inflatables!

A HUGE Thank you to our staff, media & facilities teams, Action Packed Parties, and everyone who came and made it so much fun! We are truly blessed to be a part of this community.

Enjoy the photos!

Church unity in action!

Sunday, November 16th we were so blessed to have some of our widows join us for our annual Operation Christmas Child Shoebox packing party. During our Sunday school hour we packed and prayed for nearly 200 boxes!

We’re so blessed to be part of such a generous and loving Church body.
