LOVE FIRST: Breakfasts and House Parties
 

Throughout the month of August, our Love First Campaign will be hosting several gatherings where you can connect with other congregants, learn more about the Love First vision for our church’s future, and join us in building community. If you haven’t yet had a chance to have a conversation about the Love First campaign, this is a great opportunity in a group setting to get informed and get involved! 

WE'RE HIRING!
 

Want to join our team? We are currently seeking a facilities coordinator and a church office coordinator. Click the link below to learn more.

OUR CARING COMMUNITY


Caring thoughts and prayers go to Kim Smith and her father, Clayton John Smith, as he deals with multiple  illnesses, and to Katie Kellar and her twin sister Laura, who is seriously ill and beginning rehabilitation.

 

With sadness we share news that Paul Crabtree died July 19 due to complications from pneumonia. The service will be this Sunday, July 23, at 3 pm in the Sanctuary.
