A Few Event Highlights ~

There is more to a church than the structure that houses our weekly worship. At different times during the year, we may invite special speakers or attend presentations. At times, we simply gather around a meal or for a joyful outing. Everyone is welcome. Upcoming event highlights are posted here. Details for all upcoming events can be found in our Weekly E-Bulletin.
