Time for Greece!

Follow in the Footsteps of Paul to visit places found in the Bible from September 8 - 20, 2019. Visit Philippi where Paul delivered his first sermon and baptized Lydia, the first European convert. Visit Byzantine churches with their ornate mosaics and see the monasteries of Meteora that seem to hang between heaven and earth. After several days in Athens, board a cruise ship to sail through the Greek Islands of Mykonos, Rhodes and Santorini on the way to Kusadasi, where you can tour the ancient ruins of Ephesus in Turkey. Download the brochure or contact Pastor Kathy for details.

Meal Shepherds

Imagine that you are recovering from surgery or dealing with a sick loved one. Now imagine that a friend shows up with a basket filled with a warm dinner for your family. That is what the Meal Shepherds do. From time to time there are several families that need meals, but each Meal Shepherd is responsible for one or a few meals. Call the church office if you would like to be on the list of people who make meals. Also, please let the church office know if you would like a meal after recovering from surgery or have a sick loved one. We also provide meals for new parents those first days you are home from the hospital.
