Happy Easter!

We invite you to join us for worship on Sundays. We are currently making a week-by-week decision about worship based on infection levels and the weather. Services may be outdoors, indoors, or online. The Saturday E-pistle (our newsletter) will have the latest information, or you can check our website for details.

SOS/Lighthouse Meals -- Can you help?


Because of Covid, SOS/Lighthouse clients are not staying in churches, but are all being housed in a shelter. We are therefore looking to help provide meals for SOS/Lighthouse one week this Spring. We have chosen the week of May 23-29. We would need to prepare up to 75 individual meals each night and/or lunches for the next day. The agency is flexible and will be glad for whatever help we can give, but this project will take lots of helpers. Please use this new sign up even if you already signed up before--this sign up has specific days and tasks.
