We'll join together after the service for a simple lunch of bread and soup on the Sundays that we take communion together (October 6).  Our hope is to deepen our understanding of the sacrament of communion by enjoying a meal together after taking the bread and wine, much as the disciples and the early church might have done. 

We need volunteers to serve and clean up after the lunch.  If you'd like to help, contact James Dean.

We have a Plan to Protect® children and youth! Plan to Protect® is not about what we HAVE to do to run programs and activities, and it’s NOT about placing a hardship on our volunteers and staff. Plan to Protect® is something we have the privilege of doing. It’s our privilege to create a safe environment for children, and youth. Having a Plan to Protect® is how we demonstrate our commitment to protection, show care to our volunteers and staff, empower healing for victim-survivors, and demonstrate accountability, transparency, and integrity.

Plan to Protect Youth Training for Youth in Grades 6 & up with Melody Whitehead - Sunday, October 6th  10:45 – 12:15 in the Upper Room.  If you are new to volunteering, you are welcome!  If you have NOT taken your refresher for the 2019 year, you are also welcome.
