Celebration Sunday is April 28!

This Sunday is CELEBRATION SUNDAY!

Potluck Brunches will be held in the Parish Hall after each Sunday Service.  During this time we will celebrate our recent graduates of high schools, colleges, technical schools and other post-secondary educational programs.

Also during & after Sunday services we will be celebrating YOU!  Are you graduating from high school, college, or trade school?  We want to celebrate what you have achieved and pray with you for what God has in store next.  You will be recognized during the services and there will be special receptions after each service.
