Sacred Spaces: September 13
Welcome back to a new church year! There is much energy and activity to kick-off our new church year beginning with our Sacred Spaces Prayer stations during the 9:30 hour on September 13. You are invited to remain in the Sanctuary after the 8:30 service for opening prayer and instructions for the morning. During the hour you will visit different prayer stations located around our church campus including the church Sanctuary, the Chapel, the Garden, the Courtyard and the Conduit space. Children, youth and adults are all welcome to come experience God ‘s presence on our campus. The hour will end in Fellowship Hall with coffee and doughnuts and tables set up with information about the coming year. (Sunday school and Music will resume on September 20 during the 9:30 hour.)

Please RSVP to Miss Good.
Vision, Values & Objectives
Over the past year, the Session has led our church community through a series of self-reflections, conversations and discussions to discern our five-year plan. In that process, the Session approved a revised Vision Statement, "To do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with our God."
