  • Remember to change your clocks so you don’t miss anything!!

  • 8:30 and 11:00am: Services will celebrate members who have been baptized or died in the past year. You are invited to bring photos of your departed loved ones to place on the windowsills as we celebrate the Community of Saints in the Church Triumphant.
