Community Garden Blessing 

The veggies and seeds are planted! Now we water and wait. But first we'll gather tomorrow to bless the land and the work and the folks who have done the work and the folks who will receive the produce through the CARES food pantry. If you can help water or have large planters we can use, please Contact Cindy Burggraf.

CARES Pantry Needs

Our volunteers report that the pantry needs TOOTHPASTE, JELLY, and PASTA (but not spaghetti please!)


Worship Plans 

Since our congregation is not yet fully vaccinated, we will still ask you to wear your mask on our church campus, especially in worship. We want to remember our youngest members and those who are immuno compromised or receiving other treatment.

Sunday June 6: In person indoors @ 8:30 am and 10:30am with Confirmation. The 10:30am service will be live-streamed. We hope our new sound system will be installed by then! 
Starting June 6, this will be our new worship schedule:
8:30 & 10:30 am in person worship
with the late service live-streamed.
  • Masks and social distancing are required on our church campus.
