“The Bread of Life”

Good People,

This week is Communion Sunday, the one day of the month when we, the Body of Christ, gather to receive the “Bread of Life” and the “Cup of Salvation.”  My sermon this week will focus on the sacrament of Communion, the elements we use, and how our understanding of the Lord’s Supper differs from other Christian traditions.

I look forward to seeing you Sunday!  Hopefully, this week we will be able to gather outdoors! 


Peace and blessings,


Pastor Michael

The COVID-19 Pandemic deprived us of a lot of celebrations in 2020 and early 2021. But now that many of us are vaccinated and restrictions have been lifted, we can make up for lost time. So join us a very special Church Camp where we will celebrate some of our      favorite holidays...New Year, Easter, Halloween and Christmas.

Children in grades K-3 will attend as campers.  Children in grades 4-6 are welcome to attend as helpers. 

Arrive at 9:00 am ready to celebrate. 

Pick up is at 12 noon. 


The cost of attendance is just $30 for the entire week! 


All are welcome—you don’t need to be a member of the church.  Sign up today with your friends!
