We generally celebrate with communion on the first Sundays of each month.

Sunday, October 1
World Communion Sunday is October 1. As followers of Jesus from around the world gather at the Table we will especially highlight our international members. We invite everyone on that day to come in clothing worn in the country of your heritage. (Or perhaps someone else’s heritage, if you are English like me and they wear boring clothing.) –Pastor Bill
Come hear the children sing with the Chancel choir at the 10:45 am service.
Join us for the Waffle Extravaganza between services! We invite all ages to share in a waffle breakfast and raise money for the CROP Walk (see below). Sue Greimel and the children will make waffles and the fixings, plus rice and beans on the World Communion Sunday. We’ll have a short program of sharing some international traditions during the breakfast. The waffle extravaganza begins at 9:15 am!
