  Sunday Lenten Soup Lunch
  Every Sunday during Lent we will have a soup and bread/crackers lunch for anyone who wishes to stay after church. Lunch will be served in the social hall after Worship. The dates in March are 4, 11, 18, and 25.

Many of you go out to eat following the church service. Since Lent is a time of sacrifice, would you consider giving up your lunch out in a restaurant and instead eat soup with us at church? Would you consider donating the money you saved by not eating out as a donation?

Think about it. Christ made the greatest sacrifice for us. What will you sacrifice for Christ?

We need people willing to donate food (soup, bread and butter) for each Sunday that a Lenten meal will be served. If you can donate any of these items, please sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board outside the sanctuary or see Judy S.

Presently we have about fifty people worshipping together. Our liturgies are crafted in a new way that is welcoming and easy to follow for both services. Our music programs are outstanding with the leadership of our Director of Music, Jeff Miller who is also composer and keyboard player for Simon Apple. We hope you will come visit soon and experience our warm hospitality!
