Paper is on Vacation


For the month of July our order of worship will be on the screen only. We will still provide a handout of announcements for you to take home, but the liturgy will be found on the screen only. We are taking advantage of the slower month in the life of the church to cut back on paper and time.

Church Rummage Sale

The Presbyterian Women's sponsored church rummage sale will be August 6-11.

Dates for drop off have not been announced yet.

Our American Community

Dates: Sundays 6/4 - 10/1

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Location: North Chapel

Citizens have a responsibility to understand their society and participate in its political process. Let’s set aside specific partisan issues and attempt to understand our current condition, what divides us and what could reengage us. Let’s discuss the core chapters of a half dozen key books in five months.

Our challenges are great, but our understanding of people, communities and politics is better than ever. Americans have much in common. There are common sense steps that can improve our political process and produce better results for all of us.

Used books will cost $10 each.

  • Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis, Robert D. Putnam, 2015
  • Liberalism and Its Discontents, Francis Fukuyama, 2022
  • Why We’re Polarized, Ezra Klein, 2021
  • The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion, Jonathan Haidt, 2013
  • The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels, Jon Meacham, 2018

We need YOU and your loving genuine hearts of gold to serve 3,400 children!
