The Deacons are now hosting a church-wide luncheon following worship service on the 2nd Sunday of each month. September’s menu included a Baked Potato Bar. The August menu included hot breakfast items.
Fellowship Dinner, which has been traditionally held on the last Wednesday of each month has been discontinued. The Deacons Luncheons have replaced that monthly event.
The next Deacon’s Luncheon is scheduled for October 9. Join us for food and fellowship!

The 2016-2017 season of Christian Education kicked off with “Goodies and Greetings” on Sunday, Sept. 11. Youth and kids of all ages gathered in the church kitchen to make no-bake cookies and Rice Krispie treats to share with the congregation. The students also took turns making greeting cards, which will be distributed to residents in the local care home and assisted living centers.
Christian Education for Youth, grades 6 thru 12, will be held at 9:00 am every Sunday morning. Next week, the group will gather in Old Fellowship Hall, lower level.
Christian Education for children, grade 5 and under, will be held in the lower level at 10:15 each Sunday.
For more information, contact the church office.
Join us and bring a friend!
Join us today at 5:00 pm and tomorrow at 8:00 am in Fellowship Hall for our Gently Used Sale. Our tables hold lots of treasures!
Instead of Cinco de Mayo, we celebrated “Uno de Mayo” after worship service on May 1!
Special thanks to Bob and Lorinda Sultzer for planning the event and preparing all the delicious Mexican food. Traditional favorites including enchiladas, tacos, rice, beans, quacamole, and queso were served buffet style. Kids from the Sunday School class helped with set-up and decorations. Middle and High School Youth also helped with set up and cooking, then stayed to assist with serving the food.
A free-will donation was collected during the meal, with the money going to youth programs within our church.
We’d like to add joyful anthems to upcoming Palm Sunday (March 20) and Easter (March 27) services. Singers of all ages are invited to rehearse:
March 9 at 5:30 p.m.
March 13 after church
March 16 at 7:00 p.m.
Music will be fairly easy, so please come even if you can make only one or two of the three rehearsals.
The Souper Bowl of Caring on February 7 was a success! The Middle-School Sunday School Class challenged the congregation to join them in participating in the national food donation drive, held annually to coincide with the Super Bowl Football Game Day. The youth set a goal of filling their grocery cart THREE times over with non-perishable food items. The congregation answered the challenge and the cart was OVERFLOWING! In addition, the kids collected $120+ donations in cash in their soup pot collection. All items and money collected for this program will be used to fill our local food banks. Thanks to everyone that participated, and especially to the Middle School Class for leading the project!
