Ash Wednesday worship marks the beginning of the church season of Lent.  A time of remembrance of our mortality and the saving grace of God, this meaningful worship service includes the endearing implementation of ashes.

Maundy Thursday service takes worshippers through passionate Holy Week.  From Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, the last supper with his disciples, and his crucifixion, we journey with Jesus.

IT’S ALMOST MAGIC! – Plastic bottles and soda and beer bottles have been turned into support for education ($130 so far). Just remove the caps from plastic bottles, bring them and soda/beer bottles to the church and place them in the blue bin in the kitchen. We are looking for someone to redeem these containers at a recycling facility. If you can help, please contact Rev. McNamara.


If you cannot spare the time to prepare goodies for our hospitality time after worship, please consider making a donation to the green “Hospitality Donation Box”
located at the hospitality table. Donating will help fill the void dates and lessen the burden on members who regularly prepare goodies.
