Join us Tuesday, June 4th at 5pm to hear from our missionary speakers, Terrance and Ingrid Lustaña, from the Philippines. This is an all church potluck, so bring an item to share!

after graduating, she became a missionary in Thailand teaching English.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Terence, a Filipino

the Lord had different plans for him as well. Through certain
circumstances, Terence felt a call to full-time ministry from church
