Sunday at the 11:00 service we will celebrate our ties to the Church of Scotland with our annual Kirkin' of the Tartans, welcoming members of the Robert Burns Society and the Chesapeake Caledonian Pipes and Drums (bagpipes). All are invited to wear a kilt or bring their tartans. Dr. Hathaway will preach from Luke 19:1-10, “Taking a Risk.” NOTE: the band will play in the Garden before and after the 11:00 am service.

2017 Stewardship Campaign
"Stewardship can be a pretty churchy word—one that we don’t always do a great job of explaining. If you didn’t grow up in the church or never paid that much attention while there, stewardship means giving to the church in response to the gospel." - HGS. Pledge now:

Youth Auction: November 13
YOUTH AUCTION IS BACK! Mark your calendar for 12:15-1:30 pm on November 13. Enjoy a yummy, chili lunch (and do some early Christmas shopping!) to support the youth of our church. Our auction allows our middle and high school students to go on our fantastic summer missions and retreats. We will have both live and silent auction items. You will not want to miss the fun or items for sale! God donations? A service, concert or sporting event tickets, a vacation rental, or more? Family Ministry would love to have it! Smaller items for our silent auction are great, too! Contact Becky Hagee with donations or questions. Thank you.
