Our ScheduleSunday we have Sunday School at 10, worship at 11, and evening worship at 6. And the Fourth Sunday of every month we have a fellowship meal after the evening service.
Wednesday Evening our young people enjoy 'Wednesday Bible School' (like VBS but just an hour) and our adults have Bible Study at 7.
Friday at noon we gather for a time of prayer. Send your requests and we'll add them; or even better, come join us.
We also have special events, opportunities for fellowship, ministry, and worship. We'd love to have you and your family join us for all of it.
Join us for Sunday School at 10, morning worship at 11, and evening worship at 6. Online.
All of these photos were posted in 2015, on May 22nd. I thought I’d share them again for a couple of reasons:
1- they remind us to love one another, because we won’t always have one another.
2- and they remind us that we never really appreciate what we have until we don’t have it any more.
When we return to in person Bible study on June 3 and worship on June 7, I hope that all of us have a deeper appreciation for the privilege of worship. A privilege which we, if we are wise, will never again take for granted.

Sunday School at 10 (online for now)
Worship at 11, and 6 (online for now).
Wednesday Bible Study at 7 (online for now).
The news report is here. This means that our plans to move forward to in person services remains on track. Those plans are as follows:
June 3– Wednesday Night Bible Study (for the adults only. Youth and Children’s programs on Wednesday night are suspended till further notice).
June 7– There will be no in person Sunday School on the 7th, nor until July, circumstances permitting. Sunday School will continue to be available on the Church website.
Sunday Morning Worship will have TWO SERVICES, and they will meet at 10 and at 11.
The 10 o’clock service will consist of those whose last names begin with the letters A-K.
And the 11 o’clock service will consist of those whose last names begin with L-Z.
Attendees are STRONGLY URGED to wear masks. If that isn’t possible, please practice social distancing and sit no less than 6 feet from others. The front pews are always deserted, so that may be just the place you want to be. 😉 There will be no choir in the choir loft.
June 7– Sunday Evening worship will meet at 6. There will be but one service. The Evening services are smaller in attendance as it is and attendees are encouraged to ‘spread out’. And the guidelines are as they were for the morning service.
We will repeat this pattern throughout June. We are prayerfully hopeful that we can safely return to Sunday School in person meetings in July, but we shall have to see.
In sum– We will, for the month of June, have 2 worship services on Sunday morning, one in the Evening, and Bible study for the adults on Wednesday and that will be the extent. Fellowship dinners are suspended until further notice.
Those are our plans moving forward. They may change, depending on circumstances. For that we apologize. This is as stressful for us as it is for all and we are all just trying to do our best to get to the other side of it well and safe.
I hope it includes a recognition that there are a lot of things we take for granted, including worship, toilet paper, and work. Maybe going forward we won’t treat our opportunities so cavalierly and indifferently.
Or you missed a session. Or you just want to have the series to listen to again, you can. When the study is finished if you’d like the whole thing just bring a flash drive and we’ll put it on it.
You provide the drive, we’ll supply the content. Be sure to bring a drive that’s at least 1 gb of memory. It’s a large series and is chronologically organized.
Please remember Amy H.
