In observance of the New Year's holiday, our church offices will be closed on Thursday, December 31st and Friday, January 1st.  Have a happy and safe holiday!
Start the new year on the right foot (literally!) with your church family.  This Friday, January 1st, we'll meet up 11am at the church,  caravan to Scenic Drive, and hike the Palisades together, stopping to sing and pray along the way. The hike will be led by Vanessa Johnson. We should be back to the church by about 1pm. Childcare will be provided on the playground at the church, although children who are able to hike are welcome to join in.
