Grace and peace in this season after Pentecost.
During the weekend, we invite you to join us in worship in the sanctuary or online on Sunday. Our Third Sunday after Pentecost worship begins on Sunday at 9:30 am livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube. New members class also concludes this Sunday at 1 pm.
