MADONNA MARSHALL BENTZEIN passed away on Wednesday, July 14, at a skilled nursing facility in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Madonna was a member of our church family for nearly 25 years and was one of the brightest lights to ever grace our church. We are heartbroken by the news of her passing. We will keep you informed of memorial plans as they become available.

VOLUNTEER SIGN UPS for the second half of 2021 are taking place in our foyer. Our worship service would be bleak without the wonderful volunteers who give it life. If you don’t know your future schedule, don’t let that prevent you from signing up. If the date approaches and you are unable to volunteer, we will gladly find a replacement. If you are interested in giving the opening prayer or children’s story this year, we encourage you to sign up in the foyer before you leave today.

FOR SANITATION REASONS, WE HAVE TEMPORARILY PAUSED both the children’s offering and main offering segments of our service. If you would like to contribute tithes and offerings, you may still do so either in person or online. You may drop your offering into the offering box in the foyer or you can visit our church website ( and click “online giving” at the top of the page. Thank you for your continued support of our church during this challenging year.
