Your weekly look at what's happening
I hope everyone had a lovely and safe Christmas and New Year's. I enjoyed my time away from work. It was very restful.
This Sunday will be a very special one in the life of our congregation. We will be baptizing and confirming Max Hum. Please join us to welcome Max officially into our church family. We will also celebrate the Sacrament of Communion. Rev. Joey Lee will be preaching and we will celebrate Epiphany Sunday. Reminder that we are back worshipping in our church building again. Hope you can join us.
