From Pastor Rick and Tammy: “We are thankful for an opportunity to minister in and serve our Church Family as well as our community! We believe we can and will continue to make a positive difference in our community and the families in our community by showing the love of Christ to all. The Apostle Paul reminds us with these words, “So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:46 – 47) As we like to say in our church family; I am North Rome!”
