Holy Humor Sunday - THIS Sunday
We need a little comic relief, a little gladness and joy in the midst of everything. So, on Sunday, April 26th we will have a Holy Humor Sunday. Happy music, silly songs, and jokes galore!
Easter Sunday AGAIN !

  • Coming Back together to Worship: - The Dido Administrative Board has decided to wait until Mid May before we review returning to worship in person.
