Lion King Tickets

On Sunday, an envelope containing 4 tickets to the Lion King were found in the offering plate. We assume that someone mistakenly placed it there thinking it was their offering envelope. Should this be you, we have the tickets in the office. All you need to do is drop by and verify the date and we will return them to you.
A Note From The Kingsbury Family

Thanks from the entire Kingsbury family for all the ways individuals and groups in our church family have held us up and cared for us during Bob's illness, death, celebration of life service, and reception. Our pastors and entire church staff, the choir and musicians, UMW, Cancer Support group, XYZ fellowship, and old and new friends remind us again that being a part of this faith community is truly a precious gift. Blessings in the new year ahead.
