So much sadness. How can I post a friendly update about worship this Sunday without commenting on the tragedy in Nice? These are hard times, and having a foundation of faith with a loving church family can be a source of support and reassurance.

This Sunday as we welcome long time church friend Laurence M. Hamric, J.D., M.Div. to the pulpit as our speaker.

Kathy Crighton will preside over the installation of our new officers, Diane Kleinfeldt, Zane Fisher, and Tracy Rene Helms-Capasso as Ruling Elders on the Session and Linda Wilson as a new Deacon.
