If you enjoy reading the devotionals, Our Daily Bread and The Upper Room, you can now find them in the Little Free Library near the playground at the church. The March-April Upper Room and the March-April-May of Our Daily Bread have been recently added. The Deacons provide these devotional guides at no cost to you through the Rommelle Benevolence Fund.
