Upcoming Events

This service of hymns, prayers, scripture readings and a sermon is held in the Sanctuary, with music performed by the Chancel Choir. All children from Kindergarten through 6th grade start in the Sanctuary for worship. After the Moment for Children, children may return to their families for worship or go with Pastor John to Sunday School. All 1st-3rd graders need to be signed-in on the sheets located just outside the sanctuary. Children may be picked up in rooms 212-218 following the service.

Join us for learning and spiritual growth as Rev. Howard Milkman, retired pastor and trained counselor, leads a four-session study of A Crazy, Holy  Grace: The Healing Power of Pain and Memory by the American writer and theologian, Frederick Buechner, beginning Sunday, September 16. This book, which was published last year, is a collection of essays on how God is present with "a grace that wells up out of the lostness and pain of the world and of our own inner worlds." Of Buechner's writing, John Ortberg wrote, "“He isn’t trying to persuade – he’s trying to understand what he himself believes and thinks. And that honesty is more persuasive than the most polished argument.”

The series will be held on Sundays at 11 a.m in Room 213. The book and participation guide are available in the church office and available at the first study session.
