We will have a cake and coffee reception in Cravens Hall immediately following the 11 AM service. All former or present Scouts are invited to join us for these special worship services and reception.

Ash Wednesday Service - February 26
To celebrate the beginning of Lent ( a season of 40 days not counting Sundays), everyone is invited to a service of Holy Communion and Repentance called Ash Wednesday at 6:00 PM in our Sanctuary on February 26, 2020. On Ash Wednesday, we will spend time examining our mortality and confess our sins before God within the community of faith.  The use of ashes has been a sign long used by both the Jewish and Christian communities for the focus of repentance and reconciliation.
