Worship - Sunday, October 9, 2022

Happy Thanksgiving!  For what are you thankful this year?  It seems as the days grow shorter and the harvest is gathered in, we have much for which to be thankful.   Our service this Sunday will be a celebration of our thankfulness.  There will be special music provided by Emily Vutev, Alex Ward and Tomas Bijok.  Dr. Caveney will be preaching on "Thanksliving."
We look forward to you joining us!
