Yard Sale
It takes lots of worker bees to gather, set up, sell, take down – to have a successful community sale and as well as a fundraiser for the church. Many thanks to all who helped make it happen! To see more pictures, click here.
When the threat of COVID-19 is over, we hope you will join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. The Sunday morning services follow a traditional order of Christian worship with a variety of music, prayers, and a sermon. Sunday School classes for children and youth begin at 9:45 (during the school year). Our services are very visitor-friendly, last approximately one hour and are followed by fellowship time in the Fellowship Hall.
Adult Sunday School class canceled.

How Does Our Garden Grow? New pictures added 9/25 – click here.

On October 19, we began our 16th week of harvesting vegetables from our church’s food shelf garden (and a few “satellite gardens” of members) for delivery Neighbors, Inc. This year, we’ve picked 5,100 tomatoes (most ever), 2,800 green beans, and 540 peppers, and 116 bags of herbs—plus cucumbers, green onions, squash, and decorative gourds that look like kiwi birds or twisted bowling pins. Our totals so far are 444 pounds of vegetables with an estimated market value of $1,500 (based on average cost of vegetables from neighborhood grocery stores). We have five boxes of tomatoes ripening in our dining room, so our garden will continue producing until the end of October.
