IMPORTANT PROPERTY & CASUALTY INSURANCE NOTICE
 
While we are enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures as we head into December, cold weather is most certainly just around the corner.  With the winter weather comes the increased potential for freezing pipes, water damage and slips and falls. Please take a few moments to view the following links offering tips on how to prevent these types of losses.

From all of us at EHD and Philadelphia Insurance Company, may you have a blessed and Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

There will be small group discussions lead by student leaders, multiple mission projects, and of course icebreakers!

We will also all worship together with a youth praise band, as well as youth lead Scripture, prayers, and testimonies. We suggest students 7-12 grade attend, as the material may not be developmentally
