News & Events 

Summer Scripture Study (July)--following the 9:30 a.m. worship service)
Facilitators:  the Revs. Greg and Margaret Sammons

During the month of July, following the 9:30 a.m. service, the Rev. Sammons invite anyone interested in joining them for a closer look at the morning's Scripture readings. The focus will be on the "other lessons"–the ones not used in the sermon; but welcome conversation about them all. Bring your Bible, or borrow one from the parish library. We hope to see you in attendance!

Vacation Day Bible School: "Who is my Neighbor?: Looking for God's Heroes" was the theme for the bible study on July 19th. It was a lively morning of songs, Bible story, crafts and games. Check out our photos on Facebook!
