SPRING COMMUNION SERVICE
Spring Communion Service will be on Wednesday, May 22,
in Atrium 2 and 3 for all of our Caring Friends at 11:30am. This is a
special service for ones who are unable to attend regular church
services and their “Caring Friends” (also known as visitation volunteers). This abbreviated service is planned especially for each of you along with a delicious served meal as we spend more quality time with our caring friends as well as our pastors and staff.
Please contact Carli Burton or call 793-9760 x111 for reservations.
Contact Mac Shotwell if transportation is needed.

The New York Times Critics’ pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. Don’t miss
