If anyone feels a need to sit down or stand at any given time during the Worship Service please feel free to do so.

HELP NEEDED: The beautiful weather is here and the grass is growing! And the mowing team is looking for 3 more volunteers to occasionally help mow the church property. Every week two volunteers get together on Saturday morning at 8 AM to help keep the property looking sharp. Regular tasks include use of the riding mower, push mower, and string trimmer. It usually takes about 1.5 to 2 hrs. Our goal is to have enough volunteers so that everyone only needs to mow once per month. You can help make that dream a reality! Please contact Jon Thurber (jthurbs@gmail.com) if you are interested in helping out this season.
