We welcome all contributions to help make this project a success and items can be placed in a box located in the narthex during the month of February.

Mark Your Calendars!

This Lenten season, Pastor Chris and Deacon Kris will be leading a one hour adult discussion group based on the video series “NOOMA” by Rob Bell. NOOMA is a series of short films promoting spiritual reflections on individual life experiences. The name NOOMA comes from a phonetic spelling of the Greek word meaning “wind”, “spirit”, or “breath”. We invite you to join us Thursdays at 7:30 throughout Lent (5 sessions, March 9th – April 6th).

“Worship and Music Committee would like the congregation to know it is in an ongoing process of evaluating all aspects of our sound system.  We appreciate your patience.”
