It's the first weekend of the month! On Saturday, meet us at Kennicott at 9:00 AM for Prayer Around the Schools.

On Sunday, we will welcome our children to remain in worship with us. Parents and guardians, please remember to have your kids sit with you. We completely understand if you need a space for your child to move around for a few minutes and the Kid City room is always open on first Sundays for that purpose.

After service we will also have our monthly potluck. Please bring food to share with one another and our guests. There will also be name tags that we ask everyone to fill out as a way to help us learn each other's names... and avoid those awkward moments when we really should remember that name. ;-)

There is a lot going on this Spring. Please take a minute to look over the calendar below. See you this weekend!
