Where Two or Three Are Gathered: Sunday; September 10th

Each year on the Sunday following Labor Day we “rally” for the new program year about to begin. This is our last Sunday to worship at one service (10 a.m.). On September 10 we invite all to come to worship together at 10 a.m. and stay for an introduction to the new year. Children will go visit their classrooms and meet their teachers. Adults will hear about some exciting new offerings for adults coming this Fall. To top it all off? The whole community will be invited to join in a good old-fashioned church picnic in our beautiful yard. Burgers, hot dogs and lemonade will be provided. Please bring chips, a salad, fruit, or a dessert to share on that day. Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them….those were Jesus’ words to his disciples. Come rally with us on September 10 to celebrate God’s presence among us as we begin another year of Christian Nurture.

Beginning September 17th

Mark your calendars! Starting September 17 we will return to two worship services at 9 and 11am with an education hour at 10 am for all ages.
