Many thanks to everyone for last Sunday’s Annual Meeting!  We passed our 2016 budget, elected new lay leaders, and previewed programs and activities for the coming year.  Here are a few highlights:

  • 100th Anniversary: In two years we turn 100!  And, we need history buffs, celebration creators, dramatic and musical artists, and “signature project” initiators.  If you’re interested in being part of the 100th Anniversary planning process, please contact our new Moderator, Anastasia Schulze, at


As we enter 2016, we invite you to join us for worship and other church activities. Our Sunday services and Sunday School take place at 10:30 am, followed by a social Coffee Hour. All are welcome!
