Weekly Children’s Bulletin

We are going to begin attaching a weekly children's bulletin to the e-blasts.  These bulletins correspond with the Scriptures for the upcoming Sunday.  They provide an opportunity to introduce kids to the message and theme of the week.  Please feel free to print and use them for your kids (and grandkids, neighbors, etc.).  We would also appreciate it if you would let us know that you are using them, just so we can get a sense of whether they are useful to our members.  Enjoy!


Worship Committee Updates

  • At this week’s Worship Committee Meeting it was decided our next in-person service will be outdoors (weather permitting) on May 2.  As in the past, the outdoor service will be BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair).  It will be broadcast on Facebook Live, for those not able to attend.  If it appears the weather will not cooperate, we will do the same as we did Easter Sunday.


  • Mark your calendars for our Worship in the Park service which will be held at Brommelsiek Park on August 22 at 10:00 a.m.  More details to follow, as it gets closer to the time.


Weekly Prayer Group

Pastor Bev is going to start up our Weekly Prayer Group on April 28 at 12:30 p.m.  If you have time on Wednesday to offer prayers for our church, our world, our families, and our friends, please join using the following link:
