Anne Pelkman, Brian Stocco, Don Waltham, and Evelyn Bryant in your prayers.

A CANDLETO SUPPORT OUR VACANCY SEARCH TEAM Rev. Abiel would like the congregation to light a candle in their homes every Wednesday evening at 7 pm for about 10 minutes until a new minister is selected. This shows our Search Team we support them and with the help of the Holy Spirit to guide them they will make the best selection of a minister for our church.




It’s  that time of year when we are compiling our list of nominations  for our Church Teams to be voted in at our Annual Congregational Meeting on March 3rd.

We have a great selection of Teams for you to be part of:

The Finance Team:  If numbers are your forte this is the team for you.

The Community Life Team: If you enjoy helping to organize events and have an interest in outreach to our community and abroad  this is the Team for you.

The Congregational Life Team: If you enjoy worship and would like to be part of the planning of our worship services, are interested in Sunday School and youth programs. This is the Team for you.

The Property Team If you are interested in the care and upkeep of this beautiful church this is the team for you.

We try to keep our meetings short and to the point and with our new governance we do not meet as many times as in the past. So, when the phone rings or someone taps you on the shoulder please take time to prayerfully consider being part of our Church Teams.
