Services in July: There will be no 8:30AM service during the month of July. We will only have the 11:00AM service.

A note about Summer: Last year, the ministers decided to start dressing in accordance with the church calendar. During special times of year like Advent and Lent, the ministers wear liturgical robes in recognition of the significance of the season. During June and July, the ministers will be dressed more casually. As always, we encourage you to dress as you feel comfortable, regardless of the time of year.
