The Story Returns

We begin our third and final season of The Story by covering the life of Jesus, Paul and the early church.  I am excited to continue our journey through the Scripture together.  Story groups will meet on Sundays at 9:30 am, Tuesdays at 8:45 am, and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm each week through the second week in December.

The Great Jelly Jar Homecoming

It’s again time for the Great Jelly Jar Homecoming. If you have one or two Mason or Ball jelly jars hanging around the house, bring them to church so we may reuse them for the Antique Show. Jars may be dropped off on Sunday or during the week.  If you are a jelly maker or pickle maker let us know if you’d like some of the recycled jars.
