“One of the very best reasons for having children is to be reminded of the incomparable joys of a snow day.”
We hope you are enjoying your snow-filled Monday.

BIG WEDNESDAY RECAP
Last Wednesday we had our first Big Wednesday of 2017. It was one of our best, and one of our funniest. The JK Worship team did such a great job making a delicious dinner that we all enjoyed. Their efforts are so appreciated! Taproot was a blast! It was just a good night together as a church family, eating, laughing, and enjoying being together. Keep your eyes open for details about next month’s Big Wednesday.
