This Sunday, June 25, is a very special service. We will be celebrating two baptisms, and we will also be recognizing academic achievements in our congregation! Following the service, everyone is invited to join us out in the green space behind the church for our Sunday School picnic. There will be ice cream sandwiches, time for fellowship, and games and activities for all!
Please check your weekly bulletin for prayer requests and other church family news.
