Annual Congregational Meeting/Town Hall Meeting

On Sunday, January 24th, we will have our Annual Congregational Meeting.  At the meeting, we will approve the budget and elect the nominating committee for 2016.  We will also have a Town Hall meeting where we will discuss how and in which direction we would like our church to grow.

Chili and Dessert Cook-off

On January 24th, during the town hall meeting, we will have a chili and dessert cook-off to raise money for the Mars Hill mission trip.  We invite you to bring chili, dessert, or cornbread/crackers.  We will vote on the best chili and dessert by putting money in a paper bag and whichever dish raises the most money wins!  Sign up here.

Book Club

The Book Club will meet this Friday, January 15th at 7pm to discuss Dreamland.

Nursery Attendant

If you haven’t had the chance, stop by and introduce yourself to our new nursery attendant, Autumn.


Seeds had resumed until we begin our Lenten studies on Feb 7th.  The Seeds team is providing pizza, but asks for help in providing salad and dessert.  We ask that the dessert be fruit themed, as the kids will be studying the fruit of the Spirit.  To help, click here.


We do not have anyone signed up as liturgist for the foreseeable future.  Please consider signing up, whether you are a regular or have never done it before.  You can sign up here.
