After much thought and prayer, Council has voted to discontinue Mocha and a Message in 2020. It is a sad sentiment for me as I firmly believe that we should all seek more opportunities to be in worship with our Lord and Savior. However, due to lack of attendance and support, it's time to disband. I'd like to thank those who participated and worshiped with us on Saturday evenings. Rich and I really did enjoy it. Thank you!
