KITCHEN CLOSING To better serve the congregation, we need the opportunity to assess our culinary operations to determine how to best use our facilities, staff and volunteers. Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) has decided to close the kitchen immediately. As a result, no one will have access to the kitchen until further notice. Also, this means Sunday breakfast has been suspended for now. If there are any events that require food (including repasts) we will be using catering services. Please contact Zelma Smith-Dexter and she will work with you. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to determine the best way to move forward with our culinary department. Deborah Young, SPRC Chairman Rev. Benjamin Kevin Smalls, Senior Pastor First Place is a Christ-Centered health program, emphasizing balance in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual areas of life. The First Place program is meant to be a daily process. As we learn to keep Christ first in our lives, we will find that He is the One who satisfies our hunger and our every need.
