On June 11th following the worship service we will have a To-Do list we hope to complete in preparation of the arrival of our new pastor. Come to worship dressed to serve and the church will provide lunch.

The season of Lent is quickly coming to an end as we worship our way through Holy Week. We have opportunities to join together not only with our congregation but with other churches to worship.

Our third outreach ministry with the Salvation Army for 2023 is Thursday, March 30th, 10:00-2:00. This gives us an opportunity to serve our community by connecting those in need with resources that we have available. To provide adequate hospitality we have needs for volunteers to be onsite serving in four areas. We will have a sign-in table, application helpers, lunch tables, and a clothes closet (upstairs). Sign-in table duties include welcoming guests and taking down names in order of arrival. Helping with the completion of applications requires someone to assist the certified Salvation Army representative by sitting with applicants to make sure all the information is filled out correctly. Two food tables will be set up for anyone who would like to make a lunch to take on the road or eat while they wait to be connected with Salvation Army services. Our clothes closet upstairs will be available for anyone who has a need for the clothes we have received as donations. Please register to serve HERE.
Upcoming dates for service:
Our annual Ash Wednesday service will be held on February 22nd, 7:00 PM in the sanctuary. This service will begin our season of Lent with a somber time of worship and reflection.
Our second chance to offer financial assistance through the Salvation Army for 2023 will be Thursday, February 23rd from 10:00 to 2:00. We were able to receive applications from 33 families in need last year. If you would like to serve during this mission opportunity please contact the church office!
