NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Bible study twice weekly

We don’t speed through our Bible studies because our conversations about what we read is so rich.  It is marvelous to hear others perspective on the text, to engage a variety of questions, and explore how it relates to our world today. This Tuesday we will be getting into Exodus chapter 19, and Wednesday Matthew, chapter 8 will be our focus. We hope you will drop in to one of our groups and join the conversation! Choose whichever session is best for you, or come to both if you like. Click the Zoom link below to join.


Tuesday 11:30 a.m.

Wednesday 6:30 p.m.



Window replacement: We did it!

WOW! We reached the goal of $3,400 to replace the worn out windows in two of our classrooms facing Market Street!  Thank you for your generosity! 

Help us help Family Promise

We now have two ways to support this critical mission that provides temporary housing for homeless families.  Help us create birthday boxes for the children: cake mix, frosting tub, disposable cake pans, female or male appropriate plates and napkins, a happy birthday banner, birthday candles, and perhaps sprinkles or other cake decorating items. On June 18, we are also hosting a pizza party for the families staying at Glendora House.  Donations we need for the pizza party include: soda pop, packaged cookies, or financial gifts for the pizzas (please note on your check or envelope). Please bring to Sunday worship or call the church to arrange drop-off.  Thank you!
