What's New
Parking Lot Picnic this Sunday
The Parking Lot Picnic is Sunday, September 20 from 5-7 p.m. We encourage you to bring your lawn chairs or a blanket, and your own supper to eat and socialize 6 ft. apart from other people/families at church. There will be a few activities planned to provide you with a few smiles and laughs. We hope you'll be able to join us!
