Summer Sundays

Starting June 4 our worship service will be held at 9:30 am every Sunday during the summer and will return to the regular time on Labor Day weekend, September 3. This earlier worship time will provide an opportunity to serve the local summer camp staff and to get out of the house early and enjoy the day.
