New Procedure for Distributing Holy Communion

Once those in line have received Holy Communion, the ministers will go to the back pews for those who need it brought to them.
9 th Annual
“Souper Bowl” Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend!

As we enjoy the game, let’s keep in mind those
in our community who don’t have enough to eat during this long, cold winter. 
The Peace & Justice Committee is asking you to bring two or more cans of soup to church this weekend of the Super Bowl

Sunday,  February 3 rd and 4 th
Last year we collected a record 1,299 food items. 
Let’s aim to break that record this year. Boxes will be available for the soups at the entrances to church.  
All soups will be donated to local food pantries.
Help tackle hunger in our community.
