The Ungers have been vacationing in the Eastern Sierras for some 30 years.  They love this area and are very excited to start their ministry and become an active, vital part of the community.

Pastor Tony said that he really enjoys working with youth and he and his wife look forward to initiating some mentoring programs for youth. Their other interests include flying, fishing, horseback riding and traveling, although Tony admits that all of those will take a back seat to this new full time position.

We invite the whole community to come celebrate with us on Sunday mornings at 11:00 am.

We would like to extend a special invitation to join us March 27th, Easter morning, which will include an Easter egg hunt for kids starting at 10:00 am.  You can also join us at a home bible study which will start soon on Wednesday evenings.

Please contact Pastor Tony at [email protected] if you should have any questions or would just like to chat.  You can also reach him at the church office, 760-873-6022 or on his cell at 661-510-6351
