We thank them for their service!

    Kristy is an integral part of our church family, stepping into any gap that needs filling. We love her and she is awesome! Did you  know she used to teach swim at the community center? Your kids (or grandkids) may remember her. Here's something amazing about Kristy: She once swam the length of Devil's Lake from the very top all the way to the ocean. Way to go!
