Breakfast for Dinner

Join us for a 'breakfast for dinner' tradition! Come and eat to enjoy the eve before Lent begins. If you'd like to use up your fat and sugar, let Becca Reid know that you'd like to make a breakfast casserole or sweet treat!
We'll take a donation at the meal that will go to Bill and Beth Kohler to help cover recent medical expenses they have accrued. Let's have fun, fill our bellies, and give a little back to our fellow brother and sister in Christ!

first communion

   First Communion Class    Saturday March 3rd

Pastor Ian will teach the yearly First Communion Class on March 3rd. This is a two hour class that teaches both children and their parents what the sacrament means and what blessings one receives from partaking in it. We believe that when parents feel their children are ready regardless of age they should bring their children to this class. If you have a question if your child is ready feel free to contact Pastor Ian. Those who participate in this class will receive First Communion at the Evening Maundy Thursday Service on March 29th .
