This Sunday is All Saints Sunday. We will honor those saints from our congregation that have left us and gone to their eternal home.

Our MusiKids choirs will bless us with a special presentation at the 10:30 service.

Our annual Charge Conference will immediately follow the 10:30 service. All are invited to attend.

If you are still using a regular alarm clock, don't forget to "fall back" one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. If you forget and show up to church an hour before anyone else, you get to make the coffee!
Thanks to all who attended and helped with this year’s Fall Community Extravaganza! We had a great day in spite of the rain. A very special thank you to the FCE  Committee. Each and every one of you worked hard in our planning this day and it is very much appreciated!

We will report our earnings for the day and share the missions that will be helped as soon as all the funds are recorded and dispersed. I have enjoyed the privilege of chairing this committee for the last five years. It is a great event in the life of our church!
