News and Announcements

There are still directories which need to be picked up
If you purchased a directory, they are available for you to pick up from the Church- they are sorted in envelopes, alphabetically, and located in the entryway. The church is typically open and empty during the day if you are taking extra precautions with covid19, and you are welcome to pop in and get yours!
