Worship: Sundays @ 8:15, 9:40, 11:00 am | Wednesdays @ 6:35 pm
Won't You Be My Neighbor?
When Jesus was asked to sum up all of God's teaching into one commandment, he said to love God with all that we are and to love our neighbors as ourselves.  What would happen if everyone took this commandment seriously?  As the beloved television personality, Mr. Fred Rogers says, being a neighbor is an invitation to show someone that they are loved and capable of loving.  Who are your neighbors?  Do you know them?  Do you love them?  Loving your neighbor can change everything.

This Sunday's sermon is " Interruptions and Invitations" by Rev. Catherine Fluck Price.
