Peace Pie Share & Food Drive Sunday, November 22
Stop by curbside for a piece of pie! Our tradition of enjoying pie together as a church family will look a little bit different this year. 
We are unable to host a pie social after our Thanksgiving service, but have no fear - pie will be served here!
Stop by Sunday, November 22 from 11:30 am to 2 pm for some curbside fun and giving!
When you drive up curbside - we will give you a piece of pumpkin pie for each member of your family to take home and enjoy! Also, we have a special "We are grateful for you!" gift for each adult and child to take with you, too! When you stop by, feel free to bring along some canned and/or box goods to donate to our food drive which is taking place during the whole month of November.
