Church Event Planning Guide:
Prior to any scheduled events or activities in the church, a Church Event Planning Guide form should be completed by the Committee and/or individual in charge of the function.  Completion of this form will better coordinate our building use and custodial services that are needed.  Forms are available from the church office or on the table in Fellowship Hall.


Communion: 
We serve communion on the first Sunday of every month as well as any special occasions. See the Bells Newsletter or the weekly bulletin for the exact dates when we are holding communion.
