Living the Good News

Adult Sunday Class
Adults now have an opportunity for a study that follows the Sunday Bible readings. This is similar to what we offer our children, but at a grown-up level. The program, "Living the Good News," is led by Kristen Johnson, on Sunday mornings, 8:30am-9:30pm, in the Fellowship Hall. Contact Kristen if you are interested in participating, so she may prepare accordingly.

Sharing the Bounty Sharing the Bounty
Each Wednesday evening, 6-7pm, we offer a hot dinner in our Fellowship Hall. Dinner is open to whomever needs it, no questions asked. Food is prepared by Martha's Kitchen, but servers and other helpers are needed for the meals. Contact Denise Melroy if you wish to help.
