Introducing Summer Sundays! Starting June 5, our worship service will be held at 9 am every Sunday in the summer and will return to 10:30 am on Labor Day weekend, September 4. 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.

Good Friday, March 25, 12 noon at Community Covenant Church
On Good Friday, Pastor Jeremiah will join with Pastor Mary Blessing from St. Philip’s Episcopal Church for a noontime service to be held at Community Covenant Church.

Please join us for one or both of our Easter services. There will be a sunrise service at 7 am at the fire pits at Twin Lakes Beach and a more traditional service at 10:30 am in the sanctuary. Parking at the beach is limited, so carpooling is encouraged. Also, as we expect a number of visitors at the 10:30 service, those who are able are encouraged to park in the lower parking lot behind the church. This year we are encouraging you to bring lilies or daffodils or tulips to the beach or to church on Easter Sunday and place them in the sand or across the front of the platform. You may include a note on the pot if your flowers are in memory of or in honor of a loved one.
