Sunday AM Worship Time Changing Soon!

Dear Friends in Christ,

On June 16 we will be changing the start of worship to 9:30 AM each Sunday. Starting at 9:30 AM is a popular request that our Session hears frequently. We hope families, individuals, and guests will find the extra time in the morning helpful. If you’d like to discuss this change or give any feedback feel free to reach out to me or reply to this email.

The Body of Christ is a unique community. Worshipping together brings vitality and growth to our spiritual lives. Hopefully, a 9:30 AM start time will allow more people to experience worship in person.

Through June 9, we will continue to worship on Sundays starting at 9 AM.

May the Lord bless each of you. I am grateful to serve alongside you at this amazing church!

Peace in Christ,

You can leave them in the church office, marked "Guatemala Team" and we will pick them up. Thank you so much for your support. Your Guatemala Team
