This week @ The Place

Please join us this Sabbath at The Place for worship and praise.  This week Pastor Alex will preach a sermon titled "Following His Footsteps" based on Mark 15:21-32.  We look forward to having Aron George and Ben and Sita Vete as our lead worshipers; and Sandra Smith will share with us about her new ministry for healthy living.

We invite you to stay after church and enjoy a time of refreshment and fellowship in the cafe. 


Financial Support for the Mission of The Place 

Thanks so much to so many of you for your generous support of The Place and our community. Jesus is the center of our worship...and our giving! You may give with no fees (as usual) on our church website -  And if you are missing out on our worship service...don't forget you can LIVESTREAM it each week on our Facebook page.
