As we contemplate this church’s future, wouldn’t now be a good time to hear from the folks who have been with this congregation from the beginning? That’s exactly what’s going to happen in what is sure to be an unforgettable Sunday service!
In this service Rev. Melissa Mummert will report back from the Women's March on DC. Whatever happens that weekend, we know Melissa will have an insightful and thoughtful reflection to share. Don't miss this!
A rare treat for us: the stars have aligned in such a way that we'll have Rev. Melissa Mummert in our pulpit two Sundays in a row! She'll offer the service that got "snowed out" on January 8th.
