Pastor’s Email Message for the Week Ending June 24
Summer worship has begun! Join us at 10 AM each Sunday morning for a simpler worship liturgy, familiar hymns, inspiring scripture from the Gospel of Mark, and Lemonade on the Lawn (food and fellowship immediately after worship). It is common for people to travel and look for places to worship over the summer. Do you know family or friends or neighbors who you could invite to come to worship with you?
