Sunday Morning Bible Study

Learn from the Book of Romans starting Sept. 15th in the chapel. Starting time is 9:05am, allowing parents to have time to drop their kids at Sunday School and grab a coffee before hand.

Every Tuesday in the fall, we will begin looking at The Book of Revelation. Lead by Pastor Lovejoy, this class is great for individuals of all levels of Biblical familiarity.

Altar Guild

The altar guild is looking for help. This group is solely made up of women. Since the morning of Christ’s Resurrection, as the women approached to prepare the body of Christ for burial, ladies have gathered before the Sunday service to prepare the body of Christ for Communion. If you are interested in helping with this sacred task, contact Lillian Holtum at 360-460-5655.
