Saturday Services suspended Church Council has decided to suspend Saturday Services until further notice. Attendance numbers for Saturday Services have been declining with an average of 17 people attending over 8 sessions last Fall (including the Minister and musicians). While we recognize this decision impacts the families/individuals who have been attending services on Saturday, we hope you will be able to join us at worship on Sunday mornings.
