Capital Campaign Challenge! – Our treasurer, Matt Redd, has informed us that a generous donor has offered to match, dollar for dollar, all additional contributions to the capital fund up to $100,000!  This challenge, if matched, will mean we will meet our campaign goal of $600,000.

I spent last week in the mountains of Colorado.  Fifteen hours on the road to get there.  Fifteen hours back.  It was well worth the trip.  I went to an area in south central Colorado that I know well.  Each and every time I go there, the mountains and rivers are like old friends.  It […]

Holy Week

by SLPAGE
