Our spring congregational meeting will follow the service.

Building and Grounds Work Day — 11 May 2019

Please join us on Saturday (11 May 2019) for our monthly building and grounds work day.

The work of our physical church home is mostly done by us — the members and friends of the congregation.

If the weather turns out to be severe, stay safe, but if it’s just a little wet and manageable, we can tackle some of the indoor tasks such as sprucing up classrooms, changing the hallway bulletin board, shredding old papers, etc.

Come and join us for the whole time if you’re available, or give as much time as you can.

If your day is too jammed with other stuff, consider dropping off some snacks for the crew.
