Beginning on September 14th — Worship with us on Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Sunday School for all ages is at 9:15 a.m., September 14th through the month of May.  


4 p.m.  ~ Children’s Pageant, “Follow the Star”

9:45 p.m.  ~ Candlelight Service begins with Organ Recital

SNOW PLANS: Here is the procedure to follow on a snowy Sunday morning ….. If you wake up and it is snowing heavily, or has snowed heavily during the night, we will postpone worship until 10:30 a.m., to give us time to clear the sidewalks.  If there is no 8 a.m. service due to weather, Sunday School will also be cancelled.  Since there are lots of people who live in the neighborhood and can walk to church on a snowy Sunday, we expect to offer a 10:30 a.m. service unless the weather is extreme.  If in doubt, just call the church at 397-9791.
