Town Hall Meeting, October 13
This year's Town Hall Meeting will be  October 13th in the Parish Hall, from 9:15-10:15 a.m. (between services). The Brotherhood will provide breakfast tacos.

Consecration Sunday and Celebration Luncheon, Oct. 20
Our Stewardship Campaign for 2020 is underway led by our Stewardship Committee: Rod Hicks, Janet Jones and Fran Hammond along with Rev. Kimbrough.

This campaign is not a high pressure, budget-driven exercise, but is an opportunity for parishioners to reflect on the gifts we have received from the Lord and to consider the spiritual enrichment in each or our own lives by the act of giving back. The campaign culminates on Consecration Sunday, October 20th. Please plan to attend one of the morning services and then the Consecration Luncheon following the 10:30 service. Check your mail for an invitation letter and RSVP card.
