The last two years have made it difficult for us to worship and fellowship in community, but we are so thankful that more opportunities have been available recently .. and we have some exciting plans for more celebration this summer. We had a great turnout for our July after-church outdoor lunch and we are planning another delicious gathering for Sunday, August 14, immediately after church. Then on Sunday, September 11 we will celebrate the start of a new program year with a whole day of festivities. We will begin at 10:00 am with the worship service, following by lunch, great children's activities ... and more. Come and be part of the celebration as we praise and thank God that we can gather together again.
