Lord, You do take our breath away with Your greatness. Thank You for reminding us of Your grandeur in Your world and in Your Word.
Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for quicker, easier form of communication.  Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin.  DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, will be used.  If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.
