This is the beginning of our move to a monthly newsletter with weekly updates. The monthly newsletter will be more robust with general information, ministry volunteer information, lectionary readings, reports, and items of interest being a part of the monthly news. The weekly updates will be just that . . . short and sweet with reminders of upcoming events. If you have any thoughts or questions about information contained within these publications, please contact the church office. Have a blessed day!
