COMING OCTOBER 25-27, 2017   

What is Judgement House?  For those of you who are not familiar with Judgement is a walk through drama that presents the truth of people’s choices versus the consequences of those decisions both in this life and the next. The presentation will be held at DBC on Oct. 25, 26 and 27 at 6-9 pm.  There are many areas where individuals can serve including set up, acting in drama, counseling or most importantly praying for those who will attend. We would like to invite everyone to attend the presentation and to invite their friends and neighbors. The presentation maybe too intense for children under 10.                                                                                            FOR RESERVATIONS CALL 618-499-6328.

WYN (Who is YOUR  Neighbor)

But he (rich young ruler) wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Luke 10:29


Join Carletta Hanks one Saturday of each month to bake cookies to distribute to people in our community that would enjoy some homemade cookies and a short visit. For more information contact the church office.
