~~~~~~~ Lenten Season ~~~~~~~

During this season of Lent, we will again be holding our Lenten Soup/Suppers.  These will be held each Wednesday at 5:00pm from March 8 through April 5.  We will provide an excellent choice of soups freshly made by our members.   A short meditation will follow, starting at 5:45 pm and the this years theme for the services of Lent, will be "Building Blocks of the Reformation, Issues that Keep Our Faith Strong"


Please join us for fellowship and help us celebrate this season of Lent.

Pastor Bill Sappenfield provides a insightful explanation of the period of LENT.

Holy Communion

We practice open communion weekly as we welcome all who honor Christ as their Savior to receive His true body and blood in our holy sacrament.  Both white grape juice and wine are offered.  Gluten-free wafers are available.  Children are invited forward for a blessing.  Our ushers will assist with any questions.
