Our sanctuary renovations continue to move forward.
Click here to view photos of the renovation process.

Please remember that the upper parking lot will be closed during the week due to construction but will be available on Sundays.  We suggest that you enter the church from New York Avenue during the week.  Thank you for your continued flexibility and cooperation during this renovation phase.  Please keep the church in your prayers as we go through this transition.

Preschoolers and children are invited to dress up in a non-scary costume and trunk or treat!  We need lots of grown-ups to decorate their car trunks and give out treats (we'll park in the grassy lot).  Please call or e-mail Brenda Hafer in the church office to volunteer to decorate your trunk.  Awards will be given to the best trunks in both the family and youth categories.  We also need lots of candy!  Please place bags of individually wrapped candy in the Trunk or Treat bins in the church office.
