Back by popular demand! We will have a hymn sing at  8:00am . Join the fun as we sing your favorites from the 1982 Hymnal and LEVAS.

Our Welcome Table programming goes on as usual with doors opening at  6:30am . Gospel Art, Bible Study, and NA all begin at  7:00am .

Please bring something to share for the picnic following the combined service. To help, please contact the parish office or email Elizabeth.
