All Together August (Aug. 11, 18, & 25) Mark your calendar for a festive August with all of us worshipping together at 11:00-12:15 in the Sanctuary! There will be NO 8:15 am, 9:00 am, 11:30 am, or 12:00 pm services on August 11, 18, and 25.  Instead let’s find one another gathered all in one place at one time, for worship and a light lunch option following each service.

All Together August Lunch Let’s break bread together, and some other foods too! We are in need of a small group of people who would help with simple and tasty lunch plans for these two Sundays.
August 11: Traditional American Lunch (what should it be?)
August 18: Traditional African Lunch ( being planned and prepared by some of our African members)
Please contact Pastor Sherrie ( to lend your hand in planning, preparing, serving, or clean-up.
