I am a Quaker but have attended the men's bible study there in the past. The guys were great and very welcoming even though my theology is different than theirs I was always welcome. A very spiritua...l group of guys. Wish they still met. See More

Recently pastor Chad Allen sent our staff an article about the reasons why people are coming to church less and less (see link at the bottom). The first two rea...sons relate to parenting choices.
