Summer in Full-Swing: Join the Adventure!

I’m grateful to begin each summer (and the flurry of events that await us) in a state of remembrance. This Sunday as we celebrate Memorial Day weekend, we lift up the name of our Triune God and remember that the mystery of God as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer continues to attend our path toward spiritual freedom. Join us in worship Sunday at 10am!
