SUMMER WORSHIP SERVICES START MAY 26 

Our traditional outdoor worship service at 8:30 am will begin on May 26.  So bring your lawn chair and a jacket and come on out to the back of the church.  In inclement weather, the 8:30 am service will be held in the Fellowship Hall.  The 10 am worship service will continue to be held indoors. 

Coffee Fellowship Time

Our regular coffee time expands a bit during the summer with coffee, breads, muffins, and fresh fruit served between the two worship services.  So stay after the early service, or come early to the late service to stay connected with those who attend the different services.
