Summer/Fall 2016
Contemporary Service

On September 25th we held our first Contemporary Service.  The service was led mainly by our youth, but there was music for all ages!  We had a great time and look forward to these services the fourth Sunday of each month.  Our next one will be held October 23, 2016.

The service opened with one of our younger members leading the Call to Worship
