Between Sundays, because we’re always learning and growing.

This Sunday is Coming of Age Sunday – our eighth graders share their faith statements with the congregation. Preschool/Kinder will have Sunday School, with all others staying in the full worship service.
Thank to all who made our Easter a hoppy time!

So we can best prepare for all families, please take a few minutes to register for our program.
