This Sunday is a busy day in the life of our church! In worship we will be given the gift of sweet music from our Handbell Choir. We are excited to hear what they have been working on this year!

In observation of All Saints Day, we will spend time remembering the saints who have walked with us. You are invited to bring a photo or item of remembrance of your loved ones, and will have the opportunity to light a candle in worship in memory of them.

After worship we will celebrate new life with a baby shower for the Nelsons in the Gallery! You are invited to bring a casserole for them to freeze until their new arrival, gift cards for food, or you may sign up to be “on call” to provide a meal when their new baby girl arrives! The sign up sheet will be available in the Gallery.

Before and after worship you will also be able to purchase wonderful baked goods and homemade soup as part of the Disciples Women’s Bake Sale in the Gallery!

And last, but not least: This Sunday evening, we will gather for a special Dinner Church with Farm 2 Fork Pork! We are thankful for this opportunity to gather in fellowship and celebration of the loving hands that have grown and prepared our meal. All are welcome at the table. Join us in the Gallery at 6pm!

Amazing Gifts Art Show 2017

Join us next Friday, August 18th for our Amazing Gifts Art Show at 6pm! Many members of our congregation have submitted their beautiful artwork and we are excited to share it with you in The Gallery at National Avenue!
Grace United Methodist Church (our partner with Breaking Bread Building Bridges) is installing washers and dryers for our friends in the community who do not have access to this essential service. They need help and funding for washers, dryer, electrical, and plumbing costs. We have an incredible opportunity to support our partner in this very practical need through our Art Show! 20% of all art sold will support this project, so please come to the Amazing Gifts Art Show next Friday evening at 6 in the Gallery!
