150th Anniversary commemorative booklet

With our anniversary celebration coming this weekend, we've created a 150th anniversary commemorative booklet to pass out to our members, friends, and guests who will be joining us in person.  For those of you unable to attend, the link below contains the PDF of the booklet.  It was created by Pastor Powell's wife Nicole, utilizing the work of the previous booklets from 1967 and 1997.  Please let anyone with a connection to our church know about the booklet so that they can download it too.
