CHECK OUT OUR CHURCH LIBRARY! Our new church library is now open. Come and peruse the materials and enjoy the homey setting. May our library serve as a tool in our study of God’s Word and in our daily devotional life.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP TO BEAUTIFY OUR CHURCH AND SCHOOL GROUNDS? Why not consider coming to our Garden Club meetings twice per month? We will continue to meet regularly on the first Monday of the month at 9:00 AM and the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM. We can always use help to plant, trim, weed, and groom the flower beds around the church and school. We meet in the parking lot at church. We hope to see you there!

COMMUNION WARE HELPERS: The new schedule which begins with July 3, 2021 is in the altar guild room where we set up. Please take your copy (which also has phone numbers) in case you need to switch a shift. Thank you for serving by helping with communion set up/reset and/or clean up! You are appreciated!
