A Word From Mike…

A common saying for churches of in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is that a church is only as strong as it’s laity.  For our congregation that is certainly true as well!  We have seen evidence of that based on the large number of hard working volunteers for VBS and we will again witness that truth during this Sunday’s Laity Sunday worship service.

Lay people in our church will be doing every aspect of our service except piano/organ and that will be covered by laity in part of the service, as well!  We are blessed with much talent and this will be another opportunity to celebrate those gifts.

Julie Moler will be sharing her witness by giving this year’s sermon.

Come join us for this wonderful day of worship!

Thanks for sharing the journey,
Mike

It’s that time of year to get ready to go back to school!

Now’s the time to stock up on supplies to help children whose families may not be able to purchase them on their own. We ask that you bring donations to the church and place them  in the collection box in the Narthex. Outreach will get them to those who need them. Monetary donations can be placed in the offering plate.

Please be sure to note: SCHOOL SUPPLY DONATION

Thank you for helping get children back to school in style!
