Join us this Sunday for Worship!


The Sacrament of Baptism

Last Sunday, we celebrated the Baptism of Miss Abigail McMaster.

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6

Garden News

Frank Snyder will be in the Garden this Sunday, with a lesson all about how God helps us make things right. Kids, bring your Bibles!

Youth Group News

Last Sunday we discussed being 'good soil' and allowing God's Word to take root. We also had a blast playing some games, both inside and outside. This week we will focus on turning to God amidst the storms in our lives. (Snack: Maci Vignon )

Coat & Clothing Drive

Ongoing Mission Opportunity
Any time throughout the year that you have clothing and outerwear to donate, remember that you can bring it right here. Drop items off in the storage room by the Cafe or up in the Green Room. Collection will continue right up until our October Giveaway Day.

For I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was sick and you visited me.
I was in prison and you came to me.

.....When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me.

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
