There will be a Congregational Meeting today, immediately following the worship service, for the purpose of electing members of the congregation to the Nominating Committee for 2018.

We will celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper next Sunday during the worship service.

Did you know that the Day of Pentecost is represented with the color red, which symbolizes the fire of the Holy Spirit?

The Pentecost Offering will be received on May 20th during the worship service. This offering nurtures the faith of those who are the church to come—children, youth and young adults. 40% of the offering will be used to support ministries with children and youth in our local community, 25% goes to Young Adult Volunteer experience, 25% supports ministries with youth (ages 12-18) and those called to accompany them and 10% supports the “Educate a Child, Transform the World” national initiative.

Please give as generously as you are able. The youth is our future!
