Communion & Coffee Hour

We celebrate communion each Sunday for all who wish to participate, immediately following the worship service. We use juice rather than wine. We have a coffee hour each Sunday in the rectory, also immediately following the service. The garden is welcoming us for the warmer seasons; we particularly enjoy the coffee hours we can spend both inside and out.  

 

Next Sunday
