This Sunday

This Sunday is the Day of Pentecost when we celebrate the gift of God’s Holy Spirit upon God’s people. We also will recognize our graduates during the service. Pentecost is considered the birthday of the Christian church so stay after worship for cake!  And don't forget to wear red!

This Sunday also marks the last day of Sunday School. A huge thank you to all those who volunteered to work with our children this year. See you in the fall!
