We are hoping to have two services (each about 30 minutes in length): one at 12:10 and the other at 5:00 (we will finish in time for the Cross & Flame Dinner .

This probably looks like chaos, but sometimes chaos leads to progress. Many people, during this period of “sheltering at home” have been working on home-based projects that they have long put off: cleaning out the garage, going through closets, etc. The same is true for our church, at least for our children’s department. In addition to finding creative ways to reach out to families and children, Sheri, our children’s director, has been sorting through toys, supplies, and resources; cleaning some, disposing of some, and preparing others for storage. Hopefully when we are finally able to have Sunday School again she is going to have our children’s and children’s church areas ready to go.
Thank you Sheri!
Graduates Still Remembered!
Our time of recognition, for our graduates, was significantly different this year but still we were able to share in small way a message of encouragement and celebration. Special thanks to Sheri Osborn, Gerri Holmes, and Heather Graham, who planned, shopped, assembled, and delivered gifts for each of our graduating seniors.
The Blessing Box is “still up and running” and needs your help!!! We accept everything from non perishable food items to financial donations through the church - even store debit cards. Thank you for your passion to help those in need in our community! God bless!!
The conference will host two sessions each month. The first Thursday of the month will introduce the topic and the third Thursday will expand on the topic and learn from our missionaries serving in this area. Thursday, June 4 we will explore the mission topic of education. We are grateful to Derrek Belase, our conference Director of Connectional Ministries and to Kelsey Ricks Director of Project Transfer for their time and expertise! On Thursday, June 18, we will continue the conversation with our mission missionaries Umba and Ngoy Kalangwa. We hope that you will join us at 12:10 Thursday, June 4 and 18!

Our Carillon Bells
Several people have notice that our Carillon Bells are not presently ringing and have wondered what the situation is regarding them. The answer is that the Carillon started having problems right about the time the Corona virus problem was spreading and the plant that services these was temporarily shut down. They were not sending out any repair personnel and were doing “in-house” repairs only on a limited basis. At present we have sent the unit back to the factory which is now working on repairs but again, only on a limited basis. They assure us that our is in repair process but they can not guarantee is a date for return. Hopefully it will be fully functional again soon. Thank you for your interest!
