Dear Friends

Join us this Sunday to hear our guest preacher, Rev. Dr. Roland Stringfellow. He is a distinguished theologian and activist, and his message “Like a good neighbor”, based on Luke 10:25-37 and Psalm 25 is a timely one for us. As we pray, converse and work to discern what’s next in our church’s unfolding future, I appreciate that you continue to be faithful in church participation even in the summer. Something new and wonderful is coalescing- and we need you to be present to help shape it. See you Sunday!
