The picnic is out on the lawn right after worship! We will be having fried chicken but will need sides brought in by you all! We ask that congregation members with last names beginning with A-K to please bring sides and salads, and L-Z to please bring desserts. We will also need help with set up out on the church lawn with tables and chairs before worship, so if you are willing and able, show up about 20 to 30 minutes before church! We so look forward to spending this time as a community and for all the lively conversation that is sure to be had!

“To honor those who found courage to stand against evil, often at the cost of their own lives, let us vow to carry on their Struggle. We must teach ourselves and we must teach our children to learn from hate that we must love and to learn from evil that we must live our lives for good.”
