Current Church News and Events

August 11, 2022

Dear Church Family,

This Saturday, August 13 from 5:00-7:00 pm is our Festival of the Arts. From 5:00 to approximately 5:45, you can enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres while you stroll throughout our sanctuary and fellowship hall enjoying the various art forms that will be on display. I think you will be impressed! Then you will be treated to a delicious potluck dinner followed by special desserts. This event is part of our “out of the ordinary” sabbatical summer. Please join us and support our artists and artisans who are contributing their talents to make this an evening to remember.

Adult Spiritual Nurture Survey – We are trying to determine what Sunday morning classes would be of interest to you and how many of you might be interested in joining a small group this fall. We have attached a survey to this email for you to complete for those purposes. You can print the survey, complete it, and return it to the church this Sunday (a box will be provided) or you can scan it and send it by email to Thanks for your help!
