givingtree smThere is now a Christmas tree in the front entrance of the building as well as one in the lower level classroom wing entry. Under these trees, items for Alpha House will be collected to assist in their mission to provide temporary shelter, food, and support services for local families and to help these families overcome barriers so that they can move into permanent housing.

By popular demand, the full text of Rev. Gail R. Geisenhainer's November 9 sermon, "Are You Saved?" is available for download (PDF).
