Special 8:00 a.m. Service this Sunday, 11/27/22

In addition to our annual Hanging of the Greens celebration at 10:30 a.m. worship this Sunday, we will have a special service at 8:00 a.m. as well.  It will consist of preaching, prayer and communion.  There won’t be any singing or music, but Pastor Michael will offer a meditation, lead a time of prayer and provide communion for anyone who is only able to worship at 8:00 a.m. (the service will probably last about 30 minutes).
