Peace Officers Sunday - May 6th


We are planning a Peace Officers Recognition Sunday in Church on May 6th.

Please share with friends and neighbors about this service, and especially invite those who serve, or have served. We will only have one service at 10am on that day.

Apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan - RESCHEDULED
Apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan performances are rescheduled to May 4th and 5th at 7:00p, and May 6th at 3:00p. Our misadventure-prone characters—Phoebe, Avery, Reginald, and Marjorie—have wandered out into the countryside and have become lost. We will bring them home soon, so you can hear their hilarious story. We can't wait to have you join us in a few weeks!
 
Women's Book Club - May 20th
The women’s book club is reading “Love Does”, a NY Times bestseller, written by Bob Goff. Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude are irresistible and inspirational. Whether or not you’ve joined us previously, you’re welcome to read the book and come to our next discussion on May 20 at 11:15 in the church library.
