Worship this week at 11:00 am via Facebook Live & Zoom, or watch any time on YouTube.
Easter isn't over! It's just beginning. This is the second Sunday of the Easter season. There is nothing better than the Easter news that death has been overcome and God's life and love has had the final say, and there is nothing sweeter than hearing that news from beloved children of God! During worship this week our kids, youth, and families will tell us the story of Jesus' unconditional, unwavering love for us and our world.

Church Work Day

Church Rebuild Day: Saturday, April 10 at 10:00 am

We need one more big push to get the church ready for demo so we can start rebuilding after our pipes burst! This Saturday, April 10 meet at the church at 10:00 am to clean out a few more rooms in the office area and the nursery, set up a temporary nursery in the parlor to use during our outdoor worship services, and clean out the fellowship hall so it can be used for programming.

A big thank you to all who have been putting in time and effort to help us rebuild!  We have the opportunity to come back from COVID separation and building damage to rebuild our church community in new and exciting ways.
