Please download and read our brand new Disaster Response Plan by clicking on the image above. This is the “comment period” before we submit it to the Greenwood District Superintendent, Rev. James Friday. Mitch Mitchel prepared the plan with significant help from Al Gaer and Madeleine Toland.The plan will help us to prepare for a variety of church-related and community calamities and to effectively and compassionately respond to those events when they occur. Please share your comments via email to the church office to the attention of Disaster Response Coordinator.

Sponsored by the Family Life Ministry Committee, “Chef” Don Tummons and Carol Bailey are planning another great meal. If you have not yet registered please call the church office before noon on Thursday.
This is also another great opportunity to REACH OUT and invite a neighbor to join you and attend worship together either before or after brunch.

We had a wonderful service on May 24, as we celebrated Pentecost, had blended worship and enjoyed red cupcakes after the service. Everything was red and almost everyone wore something red. Thanks to the Vital Worship Team for planning and putting on the blended services. Our next Blended Worship has been set for Sunday August 9th.
