Join us for a fun outing on our church buses filled with fellowship and a guided tour at the Panhandle Butterfly House & Nature Center in Milton, Florida. This center is committed to exclusively displaying Florida-native butterflies in the vivarium, allowing visitors to learn about the butterflies they may encounter in their backyards and throughout nature. In addition to live butterflies in the vivarium, they also have a collection containing more than 300 mounted butterflies from all over the world.

Vacation Bible School - Start the Party!

June 3 - 7 | 9:00am - Noon

Commit this season to reading scripture each day. It's good practice. If you don’t already have a daily devotion, the scriptures below are designed to expand the range of biblical reading in worship and personal devotion. You can find them in the bulletin each week. The Daily Readings are taken from “The Daily Office Lectionary” in The Book of Common Prayer. Read the Bible each week. It will be a blessing.
