Feel The Rhythm

One of the desires expressed in our congregational conversations was to be “more than a Sunday morning congregation.”  With that in mind, we are going to start moving in that direction by hosting two monthly gatherings.

The first is Jazz Vespers which will happen on the first Sunday of each month.  If you would like to be on the planning team to resurrect Jazz Vespers, please speak with Pastor Peter.

The second event, is a monthly BBQ Potluck which will happen on the second Saturday of the month.  The next BBQ will be Saturday, August 11th at 5:30pm.  The BBQ grill will be hot and ready for you.  The campfire will be lit and ready.  Please bring what ever meat you would like to grill for yourself and a dish to share.  BYOB.

 

Office hours:  Pastor Peter will be in the Church office on Monday-Thursday from  12:00 pm to 4:00 pm this week.  Feel free to call him if you’d like to set up an appointment.  He is also available outside of office hours if there is a more convenient time and place for you.  He can be reached at (616) 450-9774.
