Service of Confirmation will be on Pentecost Sunday, June 4, 2017

Confirmation is the rite which marks an adult commitment to the Christian faith through prayer, the laying on of hands, and the witness of the church community. The goal of Confirmation preparation is to empower teenagers to articulate their relationship with God, to claim the Christian identity which baptism welcomed them into, and to step into adult roles in the church.

Congratulations to our confirmands: Bianca, Ivy, Stephen, Mason, and Maxwell.
Appreciation for our mentors: Ruth, Fred, Susan, Jeffrey, and Peter.

Please join us again this year as we celebrate the Church's birthday on Pentecost Sunday, June 4, after church in the Vestry! Enjoy some goodies and the camaraderie of others who were born in the same month as you.

If you would like to celebrate by giving a gift, a list of suggestions can be found by clicking the Birthday Wish List file at the bottom of this page. Gifts can can be brought to the birthday party wrapped or dropped off at the church office. Thank you and Happy Birthday!

Choir Appreciation Sunday, June 11

Please join us during worship to recognize and express appreciation to our choir.
Their faithful service throughout the year adds greater depth and dimension to our services. Special music will be arranged throughout the summer when our regular choir takes a well-deserved rest. We will look forward to hearing their voices with the congregation during the summer!

At the Parsonage, Saturday, June 17
3-6 p.m.

Church Life and Fellowship is co-hosting the open house at the parsonage with Pastor Sheila and Victor Rubdi. This will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy fellowship and perhaps make new friends in a relaxed, informal setting. If you can help by providing some finger foods, please contact anyone on the CLF committee or use the sign-up sheets on the table in the Vestry. Thank you.

Children's Sunday, June 18

Please join us during worship as we celebrate and recognize the youth of our church. Sunday School children will take active participation in our service. This will be the last performance of the Children's Choir until the fall. Sunday School will be on summer vacation until September. During the summer months children have the option of remaining for the entire service, or joining in for supervised crafts and snacks in the Vestry.

Friendship Table Meal

Notice: The Friendship Table is temporarily suspended through the summer due to the renovations taking place at the Community Center. We look forward to our next meal on September 21st. We apologize for this inconvenience!
