Church Closing time: The Church closes at 9 PM. Historically we have finished our meetings by 8 or 8:30. We have had a few instances where we get very close to 9 or past that time and the Church has kindly asked us to avoid those instances in the future. Please assist with this request.

Upcoming Calendar Events - Please check our Website for the calendar.

Summer Camp - Please let me know if you will be a part time adult in camp. We are looking for volunteers.

Summer High Adventure: Whitewater Kayaking School - last and final call.
