Last Saturday of the Church Year Saturday! 

Cookout to Follow!


On Saturday, 4:30 in the Meetinghouse, we will celebrate: celebrate new members joining, celebrate a year of Saturday School (Reed’s message will be aided by the children), celebrate this fellowship which has come to bless us here on Saturdays. 

Stay afterward for a potluck BBQ! We will provide burgers, dogs, veggie burgers, condiments and paper goods  — you bring salads, drinks, dessert. Instant party! Rain (indoors) or shine (in the field at the picnic tables.)
