Hopkins Family


We voted Sunday Nov 11th to call David Hopkins to fill the position of Senior Minister for our church.  Thank you to those who were here and voted.

The vote was 8 blank ballots, 7 no votes, 105 yes votes. The details haven’t been worked out yet but continue to be in prayer for our church as we make this transition, for the Hartson’s as they prepare to move into their new ministry area, and for the Hopkins family as they move here to minister and serve.  May the Lord be glorified.


Please keep the Hopkins Family in your prayers during this time of transition.
