Join us tomorrow, October 13th, for worship at 9am (contemporary) and 11am (spirited traditional). We will welcome eight new members into our community of faith and kick off our “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” sermon series. Our confirmands will share a reflection about the first Feed My Starving Children Service Day and we will share in a special offering to support the project. 

Come and be part of this amazing community of faith, where we strive to share God’s love with ALL our “neighbors,” both near and far.
