Christ is Risen! – Community Announcements

Easter Sunday!  Join us 8am and 10am

Continuing in Reconciliation

Next Week, April 28th

Reconciliation Messy Church led by Rev. Nick Trussell

Messy Church is a way of engaging a topic of faith intergenerationally through play, storytelling, and celebration.

 

Sometimes something is most impactful when it is said simply enough that a child can understand.

 

**Bring a potluck dish for lunch after the 10am service

We will begin the messy church soon around 12:15pm.  People of all ages are welcome.  It is not just for kids!

May 11th

Elsie will introduce herself today.

 

Please plan to join us on May 11th between 10 and 3pm at st. Augustine’s.  $5 lunch provided.
